Summary of Foreign Investment Law Checklist for investing in Mexico
Investing in Mexico

Welcome to the Northwest Chapter’s page on investing in Mexico.  Our aim with this page is to provide substantive information of you can use, whether you are considering a concrete investment plan or simply seeking detailed information.

We will be adding to this page periodically, so check back from time to time to see what new items may have been added.

We begin with some overview documents.  For those of you looking for very general information about Mexico, one place to start is the World Factbook of the Central Intelligence Agency. If a private sector report providing macroeconomic data of various kinds is more to your liking, you may want to check out Global Finance’s current report on Mexico, available at DATA ON GDP AND ECONOMIC INFORMATION

Moving to the nitty-gritty of investing in Mexico, one of the best current documents is the Doing Business 2011 report on Mexico of the International Finance Corporation, the arm of the Word Bank that focuses on the private sector.  This 75-page report measures country regulations affecting nine (9) stages of business life: 

Starting a business, dealing with construction permits, registering property, getting credit, protecting investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts, and closing a business.  The report ranks Mexico 35th out of 183 world economies. 

Read the full report at Doing Business 2011

Becoming familiar with Mexico’s foreign investment law is the aim of our own review of that important legislation, available at Foreign Investment Law article.  This article also provides links to the text of the law and regulations.

Finally, in keeping with our desire to provide real substance, and with apologies to those of you who are experts at assembling a business plan, we include here our own four-page checklist for in investing in Mexico.
