Time is running out for completion of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDG), but Mexico has completed 74% of the indicators of progress in the United Nations project.
At a presentation this week in Mexico City it was revealed that of the 51 indicators used to measure the eight goals, 38 have been met.
The MDG is a United Nations project that was signed by all the UN’s member nations in 2000. All eight goals, which range from reducing poverty to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS, are to be met by September next year.
César Garcés, a member of the special information committee on MDG in Mexico, said that of the 13 unmet indicators five are progressing favorably, five have shown insufficient progress and two are stalled. The progress on another is unknown.
However, in comparison with many other countries, Mexico is doing reasonably well.
