The Mexican government is looking to expand food exports in a bid to fight global inflation, Finance Minister Rogelio Ramírez de la O said in a panel discussion hosted by the Inter-American Development Bank on Wednesday.
“In Mexico, our inflation is imported and that is why our response is on the supply side,” Ramírez de la O said. “We are promoting the production of corn and beans, soybeans, and vegetables, and we are literally opening up the economy to food imports like never before.”
