     Introduction Mexico
                              Background: The site of advanced Amerindian
                                          civilizations, Mexico came under
                                          Spanish rule for three centuries
                                          before achieving independence early
                                          in the 19th century. A devaluation
                                          of the peso in late 1994 threw
                                          Mexico into economic turmoil,
                                          triggering the worst recession in
                                          over half a century. The nation
                                          continues to make an impressive
                                          recovery. Ongoing economic and
                                          social concerns include low real
                                          wages, underemployment for a large
                                          segment of the population,
                                          inequitable income distribution, and
                                          few advancement opportunities for
                                          the largely Amerindian population in
                                          the impoverished southern states.
                                          Elections held in July 2000 marked
                                          the first time since the 1910
                                          Mexican Revolution that the
                                          opposition defeated the party in
                                          government, the Institutional
                                          Revolutionary Party (PRI). Vicente
                                          FOX of the National Action Party
                                          (PAN) was sworn in on 1 December
                                          2000 as the first chief executive
                                          elected in free and fair elections.

                      Economy - overview: Mexico has a free market economy
                                          with a mixture of modern and
                                          outmoded industry and agriculture,
                                          increasingly dominated by the
                                          private sector. Recent

                                          remains highly unequal. Trade with
                                          the US and Canada has tripled since
