Heineken (HINKY) expects to see solid growth in Mexico next year as the economic situation in the nation improves.

The Dutch brewer and Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD +1.9%) control 99% of the beer market in Mexico, a level of domination which has kept Mexican regulators busy.

Despite the extra attention from antitrust officials, Heineken expects to grow its market share even higher next year at A-B's expense - led by its Mexican brands such as Tecate, Dos Equis, Indio, and Sol.
