One of the greatest challenges we face is Mexico’s size, so we must ensure we provide an effective, efficient and continuous service. Security is a hot topic that requires care. We are a low-margin industry, so all additional costs immediately impact our profitability. We need to be prudent about how we manage additional expenses, which, ideally, we should not have. The health industry in Mexico is also a complex and fragmented one that requires different skillsets. I truly believe that Mexico is one of the most complex healthcare markets. 2017 will be a challenge from an exchange-rate perspective. For us, another key component is gasoline, which has a direct impact on our expenses. The exchange rate will have an impact on the industry as a whole because 90 percent of material used to produce medicines is imported.

Mexico is the 14th largest country in the world, making distribution and transportation a logistical challenge
