UKarchitects are set to gain free access to Mexico's £1 billion-ayear construction market under the terms of a new deal drawn up last month. European Union representatives reported 'extremely fruitful' negotiations in Mexico City where both parties agreed, in principle, to accept the free movement of qualified architects between them. More than one third of construction in Mexico is housing and another third is made up of schools, hospitals, commercial centres and hotels.

One of the EU representatives, John Wright, said he hoped the deal would put pressure on the US to sign a similar agreement, although negotiations between the US and the EU on mutual recognition remain in stalemate.
