Economic Regulation

Economic regulation establishes market rules and is a crucial factor influencing the welfare of businesses and consumers. In many sectors, Mexico’s regulations are outdated, inappropriately designed, or applied in an institutional setting that creates legal uncertainty or an uneven playing field for market participants. As a result, regulatory frameworks are often key impediments to investment, innovation, and economic development in general.

Society and government are increasingly aware of this problem, and have driven reform of both the regulatory framework and the institutions in charge of implementing it. An ever growing number of sectors are undergoing analysis of structural change to modernize regulations and align them with the common interest.

The challenge now is to ensure that the push for reform translates into technically solid measures, that are institutionally feasible and politically viable, and that favor entrepreneurial initiative within an environment of legal certainty and equitable conditions for all players.
