Verisk Maplecroft Country Risk Report Mexico Q4 2015

Report summary

Low labour costs, openness to trade and a focus on value-added manufacturing support a broadly favourable investment outlook for Mexico.  In addition, reforms introduced by President Enrique Pena Nieto in the fields of tax, telecoms, education and energy are now being implemented.  In terms of political risk, low levels of support for the president are likely to fuel continued protests and social unrest across the country.  Foreign investors continue to face elevated security risks.
