“They treated me very well, it was a meal where various issues of the sector were discussed, we are starting a year that has been very challenging but we have had a good rapprochement with the banking sector,” Mejía said upon leaving the meeting.
The official who was ratified last week by Congress said that Banxico’s decoupling with the Federal Reserve (Fed) in future interest rate movements will not be the only factor to consider in the monetary policy decision next February.
“It’s an important element, the bank’s monetary stance has always been very responsible,” he said.
Mejía Castelazo also met with representatives of the Treasury such as Secretary Rogelio Ramírez; the undersecretary, Gabriel Yorio; the president of Consar, Iván Pliego, as well as other traditional banking officials.
The PRI member and aspiring presidential candidate Beatriz Paredes was also at the meeting.
