Mexico to Invest Billions in Infrastructure

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has announced a $4.3 billion plan to improve the country's infrastructure, schools and housing stock.

"The spending plan, which needs to be approved by the Mexican Congress, was "not a financial rescue but will focus on strengthening the motors of our economy," he said.

The emergency spending proposals include:

* stepping up public spending, especially on infrastructure including roads, schools, houses and prisons
* the construction of a new oil refinery
* a programme of help for small and medium-sized businesses"
