GARRIGA, Ana Carolina. Foreign Direct Investment in Mexico: A Comparison between Investment from the United States and the Rest of the world. Foro int [online]. 2017, vol.57, n.2, pp.317-355. ISSN 0185-013X.

Are there differences between the foreign direct investment (FDI) that Mexico receives from the United States and the rest of the world? This paper describes the FDI received by the country between 1999 and 2013, detailed according to origin. The flow of FDI to Mexico as a whole and to its component states is analyzed, and differences in temporal and spatial patterns of FDI are identified together with their determining factors. This analysis allows us to better understand the FDI received by Mexico, identify regional vulnerabilities and inform decision-making geared towards promoting and retaining investment.
