Mexico's retail industry is well situated, given the country's sound fiscal position, workforce and diversified export base, according to Mexican economist Pedro Aspe Armella, a former government secretary of finance.

"But Mexico is an exception thanks to Banco de Mexico's spectacular management of the monetary policy."
