The Mexican transport and logistics industry’s FDI has fallen short
The participation of the transport and logistics sector in Mexico lost its strength, during the first 2018 semester, when it came to attracting foreign direct investment (FDI).
Mexico accumulated US$17,842.3 million during the January-June 2018 period, barely 4% belongs to the transport and logistics sector, which amounted to US$708 million, according to the Ministry of Economy.
During the same period of last year, Mexico’s FDI in transport and logistics accumulated US$7,837 million, which amounted to 11.7% in participation within the national economy.
The sector’s decrease in contribution to the Mexican economy stands out, especially, after it reached the total amount of US$3,356 million in 2017.
