Mexico Economic Outlook
June 14, 2016Revised data provided more solid evidence that Mexico’s economy was resilient to external headwinds at the outset of the year. GDP increased 2.6% annually in Q1, which marked an acceleration over the 2.4% expansion tallied in Q4. The improvement stemmed from healthy growth in the three main sectors of the economy. This development is consistent with recent trends indicating that economic activity is being fueled by strong household consumption. In fact, a strong performance in consumer spending likely persisted in Q2 as suggested by an increase in consumer confidence in May. Moreover, manufacturing gauges in May suggest that success in the sector continued. On the political front, the opposition National Action Party (PAN) was the clear winner in 7 of the 12 states that held elections on 5 June. The result is a stunning blow to the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) whose leader, Manlio Fabio Beltrones, had vowed to win at least nine states.
