In the first six months of 2022, there were extraordinary moves, such as the merger of Televisa with Univisión and the restructuring of Aeroméxico. The $27.511 million figure excludes these extraordinary movements, the agency said in a statement.
According to the origin of the investment, 43% came from new investments, 42.2% from reinvestment of profits and the rest was the product of accounts between companies.
The United States (39.9%), Canada (10.3%) and Spain (6.8%) were the three main countries that contributed foreign direct investment; followed by Argentina (5.9%), United Kingdom (3.3%), Germany (2.6%). The remaining 31.2% came from other countries.
The amount of foreign direct investment will be adjusted as the authorities – SE and Banco de México (Banxico) have more information. The reported amounts only consider investments made and formally notified before the National Registry of Foreign Investments of the Ministry of Economy; hence its preliminary nature and the fact that it undergoes updates.
