Infrastructure & Urban Sustainability

The growth and economic stability that Mexico has experienced since the beginning of the 21st century has jump-started the need to heavily invest in infrastructure that can connect the country’s emerging production centers. Road connections between major cities, as well as ports, borders and airports have attracted public and private investment and have allowed the development of sectors such as automotive, aerospace, agriculture and tourism. However, the macroeconomic adjustments caused by international factors and low oil prices have forced the current administration to change its forecasts. This will be the main challenge of President Enrique Peña Nieto during 2017 in terms of realizing the proposals in an already lagging National Infrastructure Plan (NIP).
