The objective of this project is to meticulously identify and dissect the regulatory and monopolistic barriers entrenched within local markets across 8 distinct federal entities and their corresponding primary municipalities in Mexico who have witnessed a surge in industrial investments, primarily propelled by the escalating interest in foreign direct investments (FDI), particularly within the prevailing backdrop of the Nearshoring phenomenon. The project's overarching aim is twofold: first, to develop a comprehensive indicator dashboard; and second, to conduct an in-depth qualitative analysis of the pivotal regulatory and competition impediments that exert a pronounced influence on new investments’ dynamics, legal assurance, and overall competitiveness, spanning the intricate spectrum of federal, state, and municipal levels.
