The Creation of the Federal Institute of Telecommunications of Mexico

The objective of this report is to review the reforms implemented in Mexico during 2013 to establish a new regulatory and competition authority for the broadcasting and telecommunication sectors, the Federal Institute of Telecommunications (IFT). These reforms are part of a broader reform programme undertaken in Mexico covering significant areas of the Mexico Government and economy. The programme originated from the “Pact for Mexico;” a blueprint for reforms developed with broad support from the three major political parties that contains close to 95 initiatives meant to strengthen the Mexican State, promote economic and political democracy and engage citizen participation.
