A record year for direct foreign investment?

It depends on the regulatory authorities who must approve AB InBev's acquisition of the half of Grupo Modelo it doesn't yet own. The US$20.1 billion acquisition was announced at the end of last June. It still hasn't happened and won't until the regulators sign off on it.

When and if they do, Mexico should post its highest ever direct foreign investment (DFI) figure. It's looking very unlikely that it will be in 2012. Through September, DFI was US$13.05 billion. Without the InBev acquisition, this year's DFI will be modest.

Looks like we'll have to wait until 2013 for a blockbuster DFI number.
