Mexico’s new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), was sworn into office on December 1st amid high uncertainty among investors. The cautious optimism that succeeded the elections due to the conciliatory approach taken by the new president toward the business community has since turned negative because of his decision to shut down the Nuevo Aeropuerto Internacional de México (NAIM) during the transition. Since he made this decision, the Mexican peso has remained volatile and investors concerned about AMLO’s policy shifts.
The main challenge for AMLO during his first months in office will be generating certainty among market stakeholders by unveiling in detail how his administration will finance its ambitious government spending agenda. MNCs should remain cautious as this new administration sets its tone about how it will govern throughout the sexenio.
On March 6, Frontier Strategy Group will be hosting our first of two Mexico-focused Executive Breakfasts in 2019. This event will dive into FSG’s scenarios for AMLO’s government but with a greater focus on 2019 as the new administration begins to implement its policy agenda. We will also explore how multinationals should change their Mexico’s playbook to sustain growth and profitability during AMLO’s sexenio.
The event will be tailored to facilitate deep engagement between participating executives and the sharing of best practices and insights on how multinationals can best prepare to capture upside opportunity and reduce exposure to market disruptions.
