This paper is aimed to analyze historical development and background of privatization in Mexico, prospects of the privatization program in Mexico and effects of the Mexican privatization program. It is safe to conclude that changes of ownership through the privatisation process in Mexico has led to the foreign investors to own the most profitable former state owned enterprises which under the spirit of globalisation of business has terminated any sentiment of national capitalism. Also, it is concluded that the policy of privatization in Mexico has not achieved the aims related to increase economic growth and development, but has contributed significantly to become a subsidiary economy owned and managed by transnational and multinational corporations. However, this aim is politically neither desirable nor feasible for the economic development of Mexico. If good performance of privatisation is required, actually it is successful only if state-owned companies are so well managed that there is no need to privatise
