pct q/q in second quarter (MXGDPQ=ECI: ). Median +5.7 pct y/y in
third quarter vs +7.6 pct y/y in second quarter (MXGDPY=ECI: ).

Nine clients provided forecasts for the seasonally adjusted
quarterly data, while 15 gave forecasts in annual terms.

FACTORS TO WATCH: Sputtering U.S. demand for Mexican
exports brought growth in Mexico’s manufacturing sector to a
halt by the end of the third quarter, weakening the country’s
recovery from recession. [ID:nN11280684]

At the same time, growth in consumer spending accelerated
during the first two months of the quarter, according to the
national statistics agency’s trend reading, and the central
bank says consumers increasingly will drive growth in coming
months.
