Executive summary

Mexico needs a more efficient government to face fiscal challenges and effectively tackle social problems such as poverty, access to basic quality services, and infrastructure. In this context, the Mexican government has advanced in implementing structural reforms concerning a professional civil service, streamlining the norms that regulate the operations of the federal government, and e-government. This section explains the contributions of these reforms to good public governance and argues in favour of their continuity to ensure long-lasting positive effects. Furthermore, it outlines horizontal conclusions and recommendations to advance public administration reform in Mexico, concluding that a professional workforce, with clear rules to carry out its functions in an efficient and honest environment – which incorporates state-of-the-art technologies – will be better suited to tackle the challenge of doing more with less, while addressing the demand for more and better public services.
