Project Summary

Introduction: For many years, the high levels of concentration in the Mexican telecommunications markets led to poor access to services, high prices, suboptimal quality, and low investment flows. To address this situation, in June 2013 a Constitutional Reform was approved by the Mexican Congress, creating the IFT as the autonomous public regulatory agency and competition authority for the telecomm and broadcasting sectors. Since then, a substantial structural reconfiguration has taken place, and even though only three and a half years have passed and we still face several challenges ahead, the implementation of the Reform has already brought significant results. Today we see greater competition, more investment in infrastructure (both national and foreign), new operators and therefore a broader service offering, a significant reduction in prices, technological improvements, and better quality in telecomm services.

Project Description: The key objective of this project is to cover Mexico’s telecom regulatory framework, for capacity building and information sharing purposes at APEC TEL 55, sharing the experiences and lessons learned throughout the implementation of the 2013 Constitutional Reform; the challenges that Mexico has faced since, as well as the actions that has continuously undertaken in order to eliminate barriers to competition and free market participation. 

This project is in line with the priorities set out in the TEL Strategic Action Plan 2016-2020, as endorsed at TELMIN10, which seek to promote innovation and value creation in ICTs, trough facilitating cooperation with stakeholders. It is also in line with the objective of the APEC TEL LSG to promote investment liberalisation in information technologies and effective policy and regulatory frameworks. This workshop is part of the LSG projects under implementation. 

Planned Activities: The key deliverable of this project is to organize a full-day workshop that brings together speakers from the Mexican Ministry of Communications and Transport (SCT), the Investment Promotion in Telecommunications Agency (Promtel), and IFT, to share some of the most relevant strategies and projects aiming to place Mexico at the forefront of the digital era, including:

• An Overview of the Mexican Telecom reform

• Progress in connectivity

• Transition to the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT)

• Actions in favor of users´ rights

• The role of regulation

• Spectrum management strategies

• The Wholesale Shared Network 

Time: 9:00 to 13:00 and 15:00 to 18:30, Tuesday 4th April

Venue: Hotel Krystal Grand Reforma, Mexico City 

Timeline: A full-day programme at APEC TEL 55 on 4 April 2017
