This policy profile on education in Mexico is part of the new Education Policy Outlook series, which will present comparative analysis of education policies and reforms across OECD countries. Building on the substantial comparative and sectorial policy knowledge base available within the OECD, the series will result in a biannual publication (first volume in 2014).
The migration of millions of Mexicans to cities in recent decades has not brought the economic benefits it could have with better urban planning. More flexible housing policy and closer co-ordination between housing and infrastructure projects could keep people closer to jobs and services and reduce the high share of homes lying empty in Mexico, according to a new OECD report.
As Mexico seeks to boost economic growth, pressures on its natural resources and environmental outcomes may intensify, jeopardizing the sustainability of that growth and the well-being of the population.
The OECD Mexico Centre serves as regional contact in Latin America for the full range of OECD activities, from the sales of publications, to inquiries from the media, to liaison with governments, parliaments, business, labour and civil society.
This document sets out when Mexico joined the OECD, what its permanent delegation does, and the benefits of OECD membership.
