First of all allow me to thank the US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, and especially Alejandro Ramos, for the invitation to share with you some views on monetary policy and the economic outlook for Mexico in these challenging times.

World economic activity seems to be gaining steam at the beginning of 2018 and a number of timely indicators point to further strength in coming months.
