Overview of Cuba's Existing Infrastructure

Mexico is the 14th largest economy but is lacking necessary infrastructure which resulted in a lower ranking of 64 out of 148 countries in the World Economic Forum's global competitiveness index.

 

The energy sector will represent a significant portion of the investment with an estimated U$300 billion over the next five years as Mexico opens the state-run oil and electricity sectors to private investment and increased competition.  Telecommunications and transportation projects which include highways, railways, ports, and broadband networks, are expected to surpass U$100 billion.

 

Finance Minister Luis Videgaray has publicly communicated that 60% of the investment will come from federal and state budgets and the rest will come from the private sector. He has also estimated the infrastructure plan will add between 1.8 and 2 percentage points to Mexico's growth rates by 2018.
