The Ministry of Economic Development of Baja California (Secretaría de Desarrollo Económico de Baja California: SEDECO) has launched a new website in English called “Invest in Baja“. This initiative enables potential investors insight into the advantages and benefits that the state offers.

Strategic Location

The state of Baja California is located in the northwest of Mexico, in the northern part of the peninsula. It has a common border with the U.S.A. with a length of 253 Km. sharing boundaries with the states of California and Arizona.

Given the geographical characteristics, a business atmosphere has been generated that contributes to investment, establishing the binational Mega-Region known as Cali-Baja (San Diego and Imperial in California, United States of America/Baja California, in Mexico), which offers immediate access to North American markets as well as to global markets at the pacific coast (acting as a catalyst to emerging markets of Latin America), combining individual skills, industrial competitiveness, access to the markets, research and development and the quality of life that this region offers, resulting in unique opportunities that add value to the investors’ projects.

Industrial Infrastructure

There is currently a tendency directly oriented to the intensification of production processes based on state-of-the-art technology. The economic relationship with the United States and the presence of Foreign Investments allow for new production processes.

Through the Entrepreneurial Development Policy, our State´s private sector has a clear vision of the activities that shall be conducted in order to further various areas of Baja California.

The State Government has implemented specific strategies to promote the integration of productive chains by means of programs for the development of suppliers, aiming to generate a greater impact on the value chain of the different productive processes of companies located in the region.

The private sector in Baja California is in transition, from the manufacturing of generic products, basic packaging and assembling, for the creation of value added processes such as manufacturing, research and development of strategic products, as well as their distribution, service and logistics.

Federal Incentives

The Federal Government works with the Secretariat of Economy and particularly with ProMexico and with the support of all Federal Government units, for promotion of exports and attraction of foreign direct investment, in order to consolidate Mexico as a leader in Latin America and among emerging economies.
This joint effort is a response to the country’s needs to increase exports, as well as to the states that aim to increase and diversify the projects of the sectors at which foreign investment is directed, aside from increasing attraction efforts in countries with a high investment potential.

Highways

The highway network in Baja California consists of over 2,700 paved kilometers and over 8,300 km local roads and dirt road accesses. The main cities (Tijuana, Mexicali, Tecate, and Playas de Rosarito), where 92% of the population and 95% of the economic activity are concentrated, are communicated through a modern four-lane highway.
