Abstract

This dissertation consists of three empirical studies on the regional economic adjustments that followed NAFTA’s entry into force in Mexico. In the first study, the evolution and determinants of regional disparities in manufacturing labor productivity are analyzed for the 1988-2003 period. The second study explores the reasons behind the export performance of different Mexican states from 1994 to 2002. The third study analyzes the location pattern of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Mexico for the period 1994-2004. The three studies highlight the importance of spatial dependence on the territorial dynamics in Mexico. In other words, territorial units should not be considered as independent units without contact between each other.
