Strategic Agenda for Reforms in Mexico

image of Getting It Right

Getting it Right is one of the most complete toolkits that the OECD has designed to help a country at the start of a new government administration. In this publication, the focus of the Organisation’s multidisciplinary knowledge is on Mexico; the discussion is enriched with international experience, and comparison based on best practices. In addition, the report identifies the Mexican economy’s strengths and weaknesses so as to support the design, promotion and implementation of key public policies for better economic performance.

Energy Policy

The energy sector in Mexico has great potential to foster economic growth and job creation. The extent to which this will be realised depends on the reforms that the new Mexican government decides to implement in the years to come. In this sense, the commitments included in the Pact for Mexico of pursuing an energy reform, oriented to increase the exploration and production capacity of PEMEX and facilitating competition in refinery, petrochemical sector and transportation of hydrocarbons, as well as supporting development of renewable energy and energy efficiency, are welcome. Emphasis should be placed on increasing investment in the energy sector, in order to enable development of new resources and the deployment of cutting-edge technologies. It is equally important to reform the system of energy subsidies, which the new administration has also shown commitment to revise and reduce. Without such reform efforts, Mexico will find it difficult to reap the huge benefits that energy efficiency can provide.
