Summary
  • Both the public and private sectors in Mexico are beginning to embrace computer and related telecommunications technologies. The Mexican government plans to spend $1 billion on a new voter-registration computer system aimed at eliminating the type of fraud connected with the 1988 presidential elections. The government is also opening up the state-controlled telephone service industry to competitors in order to hasten a telecommunications modernization effort. In the private sector, there has been a marked increase in the sale of PCs. Industry analysts report that although Mexico is the 13th largest economy in the world, it has become the sixth- or seventh-largest PC market globally. Many private companies are now using PCs to keep better track of internal financial records. Company officials realize such records are necessary if Mexican businesses are to sell stock or raise money internationally. There is also increased demand for online information services such as Internet and CompuServe.
