MEXICO (Reuters) - Mexico will temporarily reduce taxes on cruise lines that visit the country as part of a stimulus package to try to boost tourism hit by the swine flu outbreak, President Felipe Calderon said on Monday.

"We are now going to concentrate on achieving the recovery of the economy as fast as possible," Calderon said in a broadcast to the nation.
