OECD Reviews of Innovation Policy: Mexico 2009

image of OECD Reviews of Innovation Policy: Mexico 2009
Over the past decade, Mexico has made significant progress towards macroeconomic stability and has undertaken important structural reforms to further open the economy to trade and investment, and improve the functioning of markets for goods and services. However, potential gross domestic product (GDP) growth remains much too low to reduce widespread poverty and bridge the wide gap in living standards with wealthier OECD countries. One important reason for this is that Mexico has been slower than those in many competing newly industrialising economies to realise the importance of investment in innovation as a driver of growth and competitiveness.

This book assesses the current status of Mexico’s innovation system and policies, and identifies where and how the government should focus its efforts to improve the country’s innovation capabilities.

Évaluation générale et recommandations

Ces dix dernières années, le Mexique a beaucoup progressé vers la stabilité macroéconomique et a lancé d’importantes réformes structurelles pour ouvrir davantage son économie aux échanges et à l’investissement, et pour améliorer le fonctionnement des marchés de biens et de services. Cela étant, le potentiel de croissance du PIB est bien trop faible pour combler le large écart de niveau de vie qui existe entre le Mexique et les pays de l’OCDE les plus riches, et pour remédier à une pauvreté encore largement répandue. Le pays est confronté à une concurrence accrue de la part d’autres grandes économies émergentes qui sont en train de renforcer plus rapidement que lui leurs capacités pour tirer parti de la mondialisation.
