During the first half of 2015, foreign direct investment (FDI) in the three states of the Yucatan Peninsula exceeded USD $222.9 million, according to Mexico´s Ministry of Economy.
The report indicates that the figure for the first six months of the year contrasts favorably with USD $32 million in all of 2014.
In the first three years of President Enrique Peña Nieto´s government, Quintana Roo is the most dynamic state in the peninsula with an investment of USD $1.080 billion.
However, the state led by Governor Roberto Borge lost momentum in attracting investment in 2014 and the first half of the year, with revenues of USD $115.8 million, and USD $36.3 million in each period. In 2013 and 2014 FDI received by Quintana Roo was USD $455.7 and 472.7 million, respectively.
Yucatan is the second best in FDI, capturing USD $190.4 million over three years, with 2015 its best period with USD $81.1 million in just six months. Over the three years it received: 2012 (USD $35.1 million); 2013 (USD $41.0 million), and 2014 (USD $33.2 million).
Meanwhile, Campeche recorded a divestment of USD $36.7 million dollars in total. 2012 was the best year with USD $111.2 million and flows for the first six months of 2015 to USD $105.5 million.
