Queretaro leads in aerospace investment

Official data indicated that the State of El Bajío accumulated US$982 million from 1999 to June 30, 2020, as a result of its comprehensive strategic plan for infrastructure, connectivity and specialized university preparation.

The second place is for Chihuahua with a flow of US$727 million in the reference period, sending Baja California to third place with an accumulated of US$694 million.

The other three entities with the most investment are Nuevo León (US$312 million), Sonora (US$240 million) and Tamaulipas (US$152 million).
