Mexico's new president faces tough economy

Enrique Pena Nieto plans to put Mexico on growth path, but lifting millions out of poverty will not be easy.

    Enrique Pena Nieto has been officially confirmed as the winner of Mexico's presidential election, but he is yet to be declared president-elect, while his party is investigated for alleged vote irregularities.

    Becoming president is only half the battle, as he inherits a host of problems, many of them economic.

    Nieto says he has the plan to help grow Mexico's economy by six per cent a year and put millions of people to work.
