May 30, 2019

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s economy can still grow by 2% this year, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Thursday, a day after the central bank cut its growth forecast for 2019 again.

Speaking at his regular morning news conference, Lopez Obrador also said the government did not currently have additional measures planned for debt-laden state oil firm Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) beyond those already announced.
