The Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (Instituto Mexicano para la Competitividad: IMCO) presented its competitiveness index 2016, featuring 100 indicators and state qualities such as attraction and retention of talent, investment and productivity.

According to the “Competitiveness index 2016”, the most competitive states in the country are Mexico City, Aguascalientes, Nuevo León, Colima and Querétaro, based on a series of indicators, such as their ability to provide health services, housing, education and security.

Even though Guanajuato is ranked as one of the fastest growing states in the last five years, with a figure of 5.4%, just below Aguascalientes and Querétaro, which have grown 5.5% and 6.3% respectively, it’s still below the national average.

Mexico City is first for competitiveness with a 62.4%; while the state of Guerrero has the worst score with 25.4%.

Guanajuato is in 18th place, with 49 points, below the national average of 49.5 points. From 2012 to 2016, Guanajuato has descended 3 positions, from place 15th to the 18th.

The states that have advanced in competitiveness are Nayarit, from the place 23 to 17, Sonora, from 10 to 6, and Puebla, from 18 to 14.

Meanwhile, Baja California and Baja California Sur both went down from place 17 to 25 and 21 to 28, respectively.

The study shows that: “From 2001 to 2014, the homicide rate increased more than 100% in Guanajuato, Coahuila, Nuevo León, Sonora and Tamaulipas”.

For this project, IMCO measured the following indicators: law system, environment, political system, efficient government, factor market, stable economy, international relations and innovation in economic sectors.
