Private solutions for infrastructure in Mexico
country framework report for private participation in infraastructure
During the past two decades, Mexico has proven itself a pioneer in Latin America in encouraging private sector participation in the economy. In the last decade, Mexico has also made major gains in infrastructure service provision. However, for Mexican enterprises to compete effectively and profit from open trade particularly within NAFTA, they will increasingly require higher quality infrastructure services, particularly in the water and energy sectors. This publication contains a review of Mexico's recent macroeconomic performance and the business environment. It considers various sources of financing for infrastructure investment, and reviews recent legal and regulatory reforms that are critical to attracting private sector financing. The remainder of the book explores current issues as well as prospects and concerns regarding private entry and investment in each infrastructure sector-telecommunications, natural gas, urban water and sanitation, toll roads, railroads, ports, civil aviation and airports.--Publisher's description.
