The state of Baja California recorded the highest growth rate of the northern border, according to a Mexican agency report.
The National Institute of Statistics and Geography released the results of its Quarter State Economic Activity Indicator that showed Baja California grew at a yearly 9 percent rate — the country’s sixth largest.
Economic growth in the state was 1.6 percent in 2019 and declined 3.7 percent the next year.
Also, the report says Baja California has recorded five consecutive quarters of growth. However, the state reports dissimilar growth depending on the area. While secondary activity (manufacturing) observed a yearly increase of 12.3 percent and tertiary activity (trade, tourism) reported a 7.3 percent growth, primary activity (including agriculture) showed a 3.1 percent increase.
