Mexico was the fifth most attractive country in the world for mining investments in 2013 due to its privileged location and the diversity and potential of its natural resources. Private investment in the industry was US$8 billion, a 5.2% increase compared with 2012. Foreign direct investment (FDI) in the mining industry during the first half of 2014 was US$853.6 million, which was more than double the US$408.2 million in the first half of 2013. On the other hand, domestic investment was US$576 million in 2013, down by 18.2% from the previous year, due to the introduction of a new royalty tax on output.
