Mexico receives large financial aid package

Mexico is to receive almost twenty-four billion dollars in financial aid from international agencies.

The funds are intended to help Mexico guard against any financial crisis during the next eighteen months, when the administration of President Ernesto Zedillo ends and fresh elections are to be held.

The main sources for the aid are the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Inter-American Development Bank.
