Business Week magazine reported this week that Mexico's economy "rebounded in the first quarter" with GDP growing more than 4 percent from a year earlier.
Quoting the Mexican Finance Ministry's Chief Economist,Miguel Messmacher,the top news publication said the expansion is is driven by increased consumer demand and a recovery in exports.
Messmacher told Business Week,"The economic recovery is stronger than we anticipated ... The fundamentals in Mexico have surprised to the upside."
After a tough 2009,Mexico's GDP is expected to grow as much as 5% overall in 2010.
