Modern Mexico is a rapidly developing nation with one of the strongest economies in all of Latin America.* Abundant economic opportunities can be found all across Mexico, especially in industrial production, energy and mineral resources, electronics/computer manufacturing, agriculture, and the services and tourism industries, just to name a few.
Mexico has also proven to be very welcoming to productive immigrants for many decades now, especially those who bring their own investment capital and technical expertise.
According to the 2010 Mexican Census, there are over 1,000,000 immigrants living in Mexico, to include over 700,000 Americans, 40,000 Europeans, 20,000 Asians (Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, etc), over 100,000 fellow Latin Americans (from Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, etc), and many more from the Middle East. In fact, over 1.1 million Mexican nationals are “Arab-Mexican” and can trace their ancestors to the Middle East, primarily from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Palestine!
*The economy in Mexico is the 14th largest in the world in nominal terms and the 10th largest by purchasing power parity, as well as being the 2nd largest in all of Latin America. (International Monetary Fund)
