In its quarterly report published late-Wednesday, the Mexican central bank (Banco de Mexico) warned about the medium and long-term risks to Mexico’s growth outlook that could be affected by “public policies that create worry in markets and a loss of confidence in Mexico as a destination for investment.”

When asked about that warning by a reporter at a news conference, Mexican central bank Governor Alejandro Diaz de Leon noted: “We must promote certainty, clarity.”

He added: “Investment commits resources over distant horizons and because of this it is important to have clarity. A clear strategy and a clear execution contribute to generating an environment more conducive to investment.”
