Report Cover


We expect the Bank of Mexico to follow the Fed in hiking interest rates. The Bank would also react to the threat of higher inflation from a weaker peso.


Mexican economic indicators continue to show low momentum in the short term. Our estimate of growth for 2015 remains around 2%, as weakness is now reinforced by the cut in public spending announced for this year, likely to hit investment, and subdued business expectations.
