Banxico says corruption money in Mexico equals 9 percent of the country’s GDP.

BY OMAR SÁNCHEZ The News MEXICO CITY – The Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO), the Espinosa Yglesias Study Center (CEEY), different civil society organizations, and a diverse group of academic economists, businessmen and opinion leaders, among others, presented the “Ley 3de3” initiative, a project which seeks to combat corruption in Mexico. Enrique Cárdenas, director of the CEEY, said that this new citizens’ initiative aims not only to serve in the fight against corruption but also to prevent corruption throughout all levels of government, and to become a pillar of the Administrative Responsibilities General Law still pending in Congress. “This is a collective project, a proposal that comes from civil society backed by the force of specialists.
