Mexico has voted in favor of the Group of Seven (G7) plan for a minimum global corporate tax rate of at least 15%.
It will join forces with other G20 members in Venice next month to discuss a broader agreement.
Over the weekend, the historic agreement was reached to squeeze more money out of multinationals by reducing the spread of offshore tax havens.
Deputy Treasury Secretary Gabriel Yorio said the government will try to add the framework to the September 2022 budget if the deal holds.
“We’ll see if we can have an early definition of how this tax would work operationally … when we have time we would include it in the 2022 budget,” he said.
“We are excited about the initiative as it facilitates a global agreement and avoids competition for lower tariffs,” he added.
The Group of Seven is an informal club of wealthy democracies made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
The G20 comprises 20 of the most powerful economies in the world, including the G7 countries, Russia, China and Mexico.

Among the millions of Mexicans economically affected by the coronavirus are the country’s artisans. Dependent on tourism for a living, they are forced to look for alternative ways to sell their creations. One option is to sell online. With this in mind, Mexico News Daily supports the efforts of Feria Maestros del Arte, a non-profit organization in Chapala, Jalisco, to help artisans sell their products online by donating 10% of the proceeds from annual subscriptions to the Feria.
Another element of the campaign is a series of stories called Artisan Spotlight that will highlight some of Mexico’s talented artisans.
