Mexico is the third largest receiver of direct foreign investment (IED) within the emergent economies. From 2004 to 2011, the foreign investment in Mexico has exceeded 173 billion US dollars.
Mexicali, located on the southern border of the State of California, approximately 100 miles south of Palm Springs. It is an ideal site to improve your competitive position at home or abroad. Located at the heart of what composes one of the most fertile valleys, the Imperial-Mexicali valley, which is the Mexican port of the west coast NAFTA’s corridor, offers a strategic location to move components and products rapidly to global destinations. Its proximity to Palm Springs, Ontario and Los Angeles, California, as well as to Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona, provides additional transportation hubs to interline, and also the proximity to these locations help speed goods to their final destination.
Mexicali has an abundance of skilled and quality-conscious labor, with a population of about 936,826 inhabitants, and an annual growth rate of 4.9%. There are many young and eager individuals ready to tackle the most demanding manufacturing and assembly tasks.
Mexicali counts on a privileged geographic position. It has the advantage of being able to provide products always “on time” to the North American market. It also has access to world-wide quality income, as well as the latest technological advances.
This combined preferential access to a young and enabled labor force, makes of Mexico an attractive destiny for investment. Also, Mexico grants security and legal protection to the foreign investors through the Agreements for the Promotion and Mutual cover for the investments, of which our country has signed with 20 countries.
