Mexico's president sees faster return to pre-pandemic economy

With a population of almost 130 million, Mexico is among the 15 largest economies in the world and the second largest economy in Latin America. The country has strong macroeconomic institutions and is open to trade. The World Bank says that Mexico’s economy contracted by 8.2 percent in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic had deep impacts on firms, employment, and households. The recovery in 2021 will rely on vaccinations increase, US growth dynamics, and private investment. Deloitte considers that the Mexican economy is poised to grow at an estimated clip of 5% in 2021, powered primarily by exports. While the growth will be substantial, it will take some time for Mexico’s output to return to pre-pandemic levels. Mexico was ranking #60 in the World Bank’s 2020 Ease of Doing Business index (Sources: Reuters, World Bank and Deloitte).
