Mexico’s economy grew solidly in the second quarter, as domestic demand and the country’s reopening helped spur the services sector while U.S. growth drove manufacturing. 

Gross domestic product rose 1.5% from the previous three-month period, showing the economy accelerated from the beginning of the year despite missing a 1.6% growth estimate by analysts surveyed by Bloomberg. From a year ago, GDP rose 19.6%, according to final data from the national statistics institute published Wednesday.
