Economic environment

Growth in Mexico´s economy. According to the Timely Indicator of Economic Activity (IOAE for its initials in Spanish), made public by the INEGI, it´s estimated that Mexico´s Gross Domestic Product increased an annual 1% during May; this links 5 consecutive months of growth. The economy has logged a firm pace of recovery in 2022, although growth has become more moderate with respect to previous months. According to INEGI estimates, the industrial sector contributed most towards growth during the month by logging a 3.3% rate; while services became stagnant (0%). Month to month, the economy grew at a forecasted 0.1% (0.2% industrial sector and 0.1% services). The data matches global growth indicators, which point towards a slowdown at a global level as less accommodative monetary policies on behalf of central banks and inflation start to have a negative effect on demand.
