NEW YORK (Reuters) - Mexican Economy Minister Graciela Marquez Colin said on Thursday that central bank rate cuts will be critical for the reactivation of economic growth.

Speaking to a business conference in New York just as Mexico’s central bank announced a 25-basis point cut in its key rate, Marquez Colin said that U.S. Federal Reserve policy decisions are giving Mexico additional room to cut rates.
