What will it take to boost Mexico's growth rate?

Mexico's central bank, Banco de Mexico (Banxico) had something to say about that it in its most recent Quarterly Report on Inflation, released yesterday. Banxico's reduction in this year's projected growth to 1.7% - 2.5% (down from 2.0% - 3.0% three months ago) captured the headlines. But it's the final paragraph of its two page summary of the report that is what's really important. Roughly translated, Banxico's Governors warn:

"... Mexico must undertake additional efforts to strengthen its institutions and the rule of law since, for example, the lack of public security has negative effects on confidence, inhibits the efficient allocation of resources in the economy and complicates economic growth. To the extent that Mexico moves in this direction, it will be possible to detonate the economy's potential growth rate in a context of low inflation and financial stability." (underlining mine)
