Mexico : Financial sector assessment (English)

This Financial Sector Assessment (FSA) summarizes the structural and developmental aspects of the 2006 FSAP Update report for Mexico. The 2006 exercise for Mexico updated the financial sector assessment that was concluded in March 2001. A joint IMF-WB team visited Mexico from February 22 to March 7, 2006. Its findings and recommendations were thoroughly discussed with the authorities in a wrap-up session at the end of the mission. The diagnosis and assessment of the FSAP Update, and hence this FSA, are based on information as of March 2006. The 2001 FSAP found that the Mexican financial system was on the path towards greater resiliency to shocks and enjoyed an increasingly favorable environment for it s development. At the same time, a number of issues were identified in the 2001 Mexico FSAP that needed to be addressed by the authorities. The 2006 FSAP update is to, on the one hand, assess the progress in the financial sector reform agenda implemented over the past six years and, on the other hand, identify reform gaps and priorities that could be addressed by the incoming administration.
