MEXICO CITY, June 19 Mexico's stock exchange
will be connected to bourses in Chile, Colombia and Peru by the
end of 2014 through the Latin American Integrated Market (MILA),
a statement from the exchange said on Thursday.
MILA, whose members' total market capitalization currently
stands at around $400 billion, was formed in 2011 to boost
market liquidity within the Pacific Alliance trade bloc.
The announcement came as a Pacific Alliance summit kicked
off in the western Mexican coastal state of Nayarit.
The Pacific Alliance, created in 2012, is an economic bloc
that includes MILA's members and represents about 35 percent of
Latin America's gross domestic product.
