5 Labor figures Employment in Mexico has recovered since the 2008 crisis. Nevertheless, that is not the case in the US: Unemployment rate: 4.6% in Mexico vs. 8.1% in the US. New jobs in 2011: 612 thousand in Mexico vs million in the US. With an economic relationship of 1:10. From January to April, US has created 800 thousand jobs while Mexico has created 200 thousand.

6 Mexico s economic cycle Mexican manufacturing follows closely this US sector. Nevertheless, since 2009 Mexican dynamism has been stronger. Production is at pre-crisis level in Mexico and below in the US. Employment in Mexico has recovered from pre-crisis levels. Mexican exports have shown significant increases.

7 Mexico s currency vs. Latin America and Canada Currently, Mexico is the only country in Latin America with sustained currency depreciation since the 2008 crisis (post-lehman), relative to the US dollar. Mexico has achieved a higher degree of competitiveness from the weaker peso, higher global transport costs, and lower unit labor cost differential between Mexico and other Asian countries.

9 Mexico s Trade Agreements Mexico has 42 trade agreements. Exports plus imports as a percentage of GDP indicate the degree of openness of an economy: it was of 18.5% in Brazil, 51.7% in Canada, 58.6% in Mexico, and 21.6% for US. Mexico s agreements Source: Secretaría de Economía 9

12 Net migration from Mexico falls to zero-and perhaps less As George Shultz anticipated a couple of years ago, the net migration flow from Mexico to the US has stopped and may have reversed. According to a study from the Pew Center: Between 2005 and 2010, 1.4 million Mexicans migrated north of the border, fewer than half as many as in the previous five-year period. Meanwhile, the number of Mexicans and their children who returned to Mexico between 2005 and 2010 rose to 1.4 million, about double the number who headed back home between 1995 and These trends suggests that the return flow to Mexico surpassed arrivals to the US in 2010 and year migration flows US-Mexico (thousands) Note: Estimates are for February 1995 through February 2000 and June 2005 through June Migration from US to Mexico includes persons born in Mexico, the US, and elsewhere; Mexico to US includes Mexican-born persons only Source: Pew Center, WSJ. 12

14 Mexican Macroeconomic Fundamentals Mexico exports a billion dollars a day. Employment in Mexico is above its pre-crisis level. The international reserves in Mexico are at their highest levels. Demographic transition will help the economy for the next 20 years. 14

15 Security policy and violence trends Organized crime-related violence increased dramatically from 2008 to During 2011 it stabilized and it seems have started a decreasing trend. In April the number of deaths was of 1,180, a monthly decrease of 12%. Murders per 100,000 inhabitants Source: ICESI, Lantia, UN. 15
