    The Mexican government says the country is beginning to emerge from its deepest recession in 50 years, but officials say that the pace of economic recovery will be slow.

    In recent months, millions of Mexicans have fallen into poverty, largely due to the continuing economic crisis.

    President Felipe Calderon says he is instituting policies to help the poorest in Mexican society but, as Franc Contreras reports, there are concerns that those measures will do little to bring relief to those most in need.
