Nevertheless, some barriers to trade and investment persist, while per
capita income has risen only modestly and alleviating poverty remains a
challenge. Steps to speed up productivity growth would seem necessary,
such as increasing competition in the domestic market, and the
rationalization of the MFN tariff and of special fiscal regimes.
The report notes that further structural reforms would contribute to
reducing bottlenecks in areas such as energy, telecommunications and
transport. Resolving these long-standing issues would help Mexico to
take advantage of the significant progress already attained in order to
accelerate growth and achieve higher living standards.

Trade Policy Reviews are an exercise, mandated in the WTO agreements,
in which member countries’ trade and related policies are examined and
evaluated at regular intervals. Significant developments that may have
an impact on the global trading system are also monitored. For each
review, two documents are prepared: a policy statement by the
government of the member under review, and a detailed report written
independently by the WTO Secretariat. These two documents are then
discussed by the WTO’s full membership in the Trade Policy Review Body
(TPRB). These documents and the proceedings of the TPRB’s meetings are
published shortly afterwards.

WTO Secretariat, Centre William Rappard, 154 rue de Lausanne, 1211
