MEXICO CITY: President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador insisted Monday the Mexican economy is strong as he completed 100 days in office, dismissing critics who warn a climate of uncertainty could weigh on growth.

"Fortunately, our economy is on the march. It's still growing slowly, but there's not the slightest sign of a recession, as our conservative opponents wish and as their economic analysts forecast, in bad faith," the president said in a speech, reports AFP.

The anti-establishment leftist won a landslide victory in Mexico's elections last year, and remains widely popular. But he has caused jitters in the business world with his vows to overhaul the country's "neoliberal" economic model.
