ORTIZ AVALOS, Luis  and  RUIZ OCHOA, Wilfrido. Inter-municipal Convergence of Manufacturing in Sonora: The Role of State Investment. Frontera norte [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.44, pp.79-107. ISSN 2594-0260.

After assessing Sonora's industrialization, this paper explores whether, during the period from 1993 to2003, its municipalities have tended towards a greater or lesser differentiation in their added manufacturing value, and whether this pattern has been influenced by the criteria for geographical allocation of state investment in infrastructure. It uses this information toreview the policies that in theory, should serve as a counterweight to regional disparities. It concludes that, although the rate of municipal convergence in Sonora is relatively high, it has tended to decline. It also confirms the state's limited capacity to use its resources, to influence the regional pattern of manufacturing development.

Keywords : Regional disparities; infrastructure; public spending; manufacturing; Sonora.
