Mexico captures $24,831.7 million dollars in FDI in the first nine months of 2021

#SecretaríaDeEconomía.- During the first nine months of 2021 (January-September), we report a preliminary Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) figure 5.7% higher than that achieved in the same period of 2020. As usual with this statistic, the figure will be adjusted when there is more information on the operations for that period.

From January to September 2021, Mexico registered 24,831.7 million dollars (mdd) in FDI, 5.7% higher than the preliminary figure for the same period in 2020 (23,482.3 mdd).

This shows a recovery of FDI flows, in line with the positive global trend, according to the latest UNCTAD data.

Preliminary FDI registered for January-September 2021 came from: 3,259 companies with foreign capital participation; 3,721 trust contracts; and 23 foreign legal entities. In addition, it is made up as follows:

By type of investment (origin of financing): through reinvestment of profits, 40.3%; through new investments, 38.4%; and through intercompany accounts, 21.3%.
By sector: manufacturing, 45.0%; mining, 14.0%; financial and insurance services, 10.9%; transportation, 10.0%; commerce, 6.0%; and temporary housing services, 4.6%. The remaining sectors accounted for 9.5%.
By country of origin: United States, 49.6%; Spain, 10.7%; Japan, 6.3%; Germany, 5.3%; Canada, 5.2%; and other countries contributed the remaining 22.9%.
The methodology for determining FDI is based on international standards, contained in both the Balance of Payments Manual of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Framework Definition of Foreign Direct Investment of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

The amounts reported only consider investments made and formally notified to the National Registry of Foreign Investments of the Ministry of Economy; therefore, they are preliminary and may be updated in successive quarters.
