Mexico has made significant economic progress, transitioning from a largely agricultural economy to a manufacturing economy. Mexico also has significant natural resources that are often overlooked due to the proximity to the U.S. and Canada. The peso has proved to be a very stable currency in relation to the Canadian and U.S. dollars. This separates the Mexican peso from many of the more volatile currencies in Latin America.
