Mexico falls 8 positions in the Foreign Direct Investment index

135

The United States retained the first position, followed by Germany, Canada, the United Kingdom, and France

Mexico fell eight positions, to 25 place from the 17th place, in the Index of Confidence of Direct Foreign Investment 2019 prepared by the consultancy AT Kearney.

The United States retained the first position, followed by Germany, Canada, the United Kingdom and France.

With this, for the seventh consecutive year, the United States and Canada were positioned within the first five markets in the index, while this year Mexico fell significantly, despite an improvement in its rating, from 1.47 to 1.49 .

“Mexico remains the only Latin American country in the index with the United States and Canada among the first three places and Brazil leaving the index (which evaluates 25 economies),” said Ricardo Haneine, director of AT Kearney Mexico .

According to him, the possible ratification of the Treaty between Mexico, the United States and Canada ( T-MEC ), the entry into force of the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty (CPTPP) and the probable ratification of the updating of the The Free Trade Agreement of the European Union with Mexico ( TLCUEM ) will integrate more into Mexico into the global economy and facilitate the entry of FDI into the country.
