Low commodity prices, plunging currencies, and stock market sell-offs across emerging markets have hit Latin America particularly hard this year. However, despite these forewarnings of economic stress, Mexico's economy is growing, with the country becoming one of the fastest growing technology hubs in the Latin American region, thereby making it a strategic destination for foreign investments.

- Moreover, enterprises are increasing their ICT budget allocations toward software and services for the smooth running of their applications and to streamline their IT operations.
- According to the survey, Mexico's telecom sector is getting a major boost as well, with a considerable proportion of their average telecommunications budget allocated to network services and broadband in an effort to expand the reach and penetration of the internet in the region.
