NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/06/14 -- LatinFinance announces the results of its 2014 Finance Ministry Scorecard and Public Credit Scorecard. The rankings, now in their 5th year, are the industry's most respected, independent annual rankings of Finance Ministries and Public Credit Management across Latin America and the Caribbean, recognizing excellence in the conduct of economic policy and of public debt management respectively.

Mexico reforms its way to the top: declared winner across both the Finance Ministry and Public Credit Scorecards

Commenting on the awardsLatinFinance Editor-in-chief Taimur Ahmad said:
"Mexico's reform agenda is historic in its significance. Much credit goes to the finance ministry, led by Minister Luis Videgaray, for the design, negotiation and ultimate passage of the reforms which are likely to have a transformative impact on the economy and its growth potential."

He added that Mexico's sound management of its public debt also gave it the edge over its regional peers. "Mexico is yet again in a league of its own when it comes to the skilled management of its public debt -- in terms of maintaining liquid curves, timing transactions well and being transparent with investors. It has also remained among the most innovative borrowers in the capital markets."

Mexican Finance Minister Luis Videgaray will be interviewed by Taimur Ahmad on Thursday, March 6th during LatinFinance's 9th Cumbre Financiera Mexicana taking place in Mexico City. The interview and Scorecards will be available to view online shortly after on www.LatinFinance.com.
