  • 9:10 AM Mexico at a Crossroad: What is the outlook?

    Ambassador Carlos Pascual , Senior Vice President, Global Energy, IHS Markit

    Mexico is at a crossroad in its strategy for economic growth. Mexico is also at a crossroad in its relations with the United States. These two journeys - interconnected - could determine whether Mexico has the capacity to grow and create confidence in its future or whether it will continue to live in an environment of uncertainty. These are the issues that we will explore.

  • 9:50 AM Mexico: Poor Economic Prospects may worsen on renewed threats of trade disruptions

    Rafael Amiel, Director, Latin America & Caribbean Economics, IHS Markit

    Mexico's economic outlook remains challenged by uncertainties regarding domestic economic policy and external risks related to US threats to disrupt trade flows. If materialized, a 25% tariff on Mexican exports to the US will put Mexico's economy into recession. Severe volatility would affect the foreign exchange market and domestic prices. Investment would be further constrained. While this is not the baseline scenario, the uncertainties surrounding business activity are already hurting economic growth prospects.

    Felipe Pérez, Consulting Director, Oil Markets, Midstream & Downstream Energy, IHS Markit

    Stable fuels supply at a fair price is essential to impulse a country's economic growth, from the movement of goods to its citizens mobility, to powering industries. However, technological innovation and environmental policies are reshaping our relationship with mobility and changing the global supply and demand profiles.
