The Impact of NAFTA on Training and Development in Mexico: The Perspective of Mexican Senior Government Agency Officials
Ruiz, Carlos Enrique
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v23 n4 p51-66 Fall 2009
This study explored the perceptions of Mexican senior government agency officials with regard to the impact of NAFTA on training and development practices in Mexico. This study was conducted using a phenomenological tradition within qualitative research. The major findings of the study indicate that Mexican senior government agency officials consider NAFTA as a driver for the implementation/development of training and development practices in Mexican companies. According to the participants' perceptions, NAFTA motivated the creation and development of national programs for training and development. The Mexican government has found in these programs a means to provide support to Mexican companies to increase their competitiveness.
