C&W Industrial Research MarketNote: Foreign Investment in Mexico Reaches Record High; Central States Lead Industrial Surge in Mexico
Foreign direct investment in Mexico reached a record high in 2013 with $35.2 billion being invested in the country. The amount is 178% higher than the $12.7 billion recorded in 2012. Mexico is having its largest economic change in the last 20 years. The successful reforms agenda will open up Mexican industry to a level never seen before and boost the Mexican economy. This is attracting many big industrial investments that will increasingly take advantage of lower logistics costs driven by the energy and telecomm reforms, further increasing the high quality and very cost effective labor market they currently enjoy.
