Infrastructure is the key to Baja California's continued economic expansion. The Punta Colonet and Silicon Border projects will elevate the state to where it is able to compete for the most high-profile manufacturing projects in North America.
These days the stakes are higher; Mexican border states are not only competing against central Mexico and the Bajio for major manufacturing projects, they are also in competition with U.S. southern states, which have extremely aggressive investment attraction programs in place and can offer comparable fixed operating costs.
The public and private sectors are working hard to ensure that infrastructure becomes a strong selling point and not a detractor. They are well on their way to making this the main reason why companies will want to locate in Baja California.
