MEXICO CITY Jan 10 Mexico's economy will grow
slighty more in 2017 than last year, OECD chief Jose Angel
Gurria said on Tuesday, going against the consensus view that
protectionist policies by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump will
hurt the Latin American nation.
Gurria, himself Mexican, said a depreciation in the peso
currency would make Mexico's exports more competetive, boosting
the economy above the 2.2 percent growth of 2016. He predicted
further improvement in 2018.
