Mexico: 2Q21 GDP – Acceleration fueled by the reopening

  • GDP rose 1.5% q/q in 2Q21 (+19.7% y/y), gaining momentum on the back of improving epidemiological conditions

  • By sectors, services led the charge at +2.1% q/q, with agricultural surprising at 0.6%, while industry advanced 0.4%

  • This is consistent with our call of a full-year expansion of 6.2%, forecasting a deceleration in the second half
