The well-being of the U.S. economy is closely tied to that of Mexico’s due to significant bilateral trade and investment and its impact on employment. More than six million U.S. jobs depend on trade with Mexico.
Although Mexico ranks well in international competitiveness indices, constraints to increased growth include security concerns that increase the costs of doing business, barriers to domestic competition in key sectors such as energy and telecommunications, weaknesses in the educational system, and inefficiencies in the labor market.
We support Mexico’s efforts to enhance economic competitiveness by:
- improving public policies
- catalyzing public and private sector resources to expand socio-economic opportunities in the regions most affected by crime
- developing sustainable financing models to support community priorities
