KEY FINDINGS: Value of IP for health and growth. The economic benefits of strengthening the environment for innovation in Mexico

Interpat and AMIIF asked Charles River Associates (CRA) to identify and quantify the economic benefits from strengthening the environment for innovation in Mexico. The objective of the study is to set out the policy framework supporting innovation in Mexico and the current state of innovative activity; undertaking a case study analysis on countries, outside the LatAM region, with potential lessons from other countries which may represent an opportunity for Mexico and to develop scenarios as to how innovative activity could change in Mexico, if policies adopted in other countries were pursued. The approach builds on similar analysis applied to Argentina in 2018 and Brazil in 2019.
