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.
