Foreign direct investment (FDI) determinants and spatial spillovers across Mexico's states

Abstract

This article studies the location pattern of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Mexico for the period 1994-2004. An empirical model is specified based on recent FDI theories. This model is estimated using state-level data and employing spatial econometric techniques. Results suggest that higher education levels and lower delinquency rates are important determinants to attract FDI. Results also suggest a relationship of complementarity between inbound FDI to the host state and inward FDI to its neighboring states.
