With its National Development Plan 2013–2018, Mexico’s government aims to ensure that the country achieves its full economic and social potential. To realise the plan’s vision, the Secretariat of Economy (SE) was developing a detailed industrial policy, focusing on four programmes to address key challenges – driving innovation, developing suppliers, supporting regional economic development and closing capability gaps.
Drawing on our experience of supporting governments across the world and our implementation expertise, we helped the groups understand exactly what they needed to do to create the components of a robust industrial policy. We managed their input, set milestones and reviewed progress to ensure that all the work done by the groups was brought together into a set of coherent policies.
PA created the final policy reports in time for the main meeting of Mexican industry, allowing the SE to inspire Mexican business leaders for the role they can play in the country’s economic development. Our work helps move Mexico an important step forward on its economic journey, by turning the National Development Plan into detailed policies, which government and business can now begin to put into practice together.
“PA’s implementation skills and experience of working with governments on economic development was key to the successful completion of this work. The team faced a tight deadline and their knowledge and dedication were vital in getting these detailed policies over the finish line.”
