Hi Steve: Are there some Mexico´s Federal Government tax incentives for investing building a technological business in Silicon Border? I already saw the LEY DE FOMENTO A LA COMPETITIVIDAD Y DESARROLLO ECONÓMICO PARA EL ESTADO DE BAJA CALIFORNIA (which allows exemption for Baja California State’s Impuesto sobre Nomina, among others), but I wonder if there is a kind of presidential decree that has an income tax break which allows a company that is located at Silicon Border an exemption of federal taxes. I also read an article which states that semiconductor manufacturers go through 10-yrs tax break. Is that true?

First, If you're looking for hard data on comparative costs, you can find it at Alix Partners (AlixPartners.com). They did a competitiveness study comparing China, Brazil, India, and Mexico. For most products Mexico comes out ahead. Second, despite what we hear from the media, violence in Mexico is very regionalized. For the most part, the business community has not really been affected (See Business Week April 9,2009. In fact, many cities in Mexico are statistically safer from a homicide perspective than Detroit, Oakland, Baltimore, St. Louis, Washington DC, Dallas, Phoenix and many others in the US.

Hi Steve, despite the many good reasons you mention in favour of sourcing from Mexico I see the current break down of law & order in certain parts of the country a real risk. The Mexican Government really must get to grips with the violence associated with drugs & corruption before companies consider expanding their interests in Mexico.

This article is certainly very encouraging. But I'm skeptical. Not an ounce of data or a single reference was mentioned. Where does all of this commentary come from?
