The automotive industry in Mexico is an example of how a country can develop and specialize in a productive domain.
History goes back to 1921-1935, when the first investments were made by Buick, Ford, General Motors (GM) and Chrysler, with the purpose of satisfying domestic demand. By the 40s, other brands had arrived and a decree was issued prohibiting the importation of automobiles. In 1962, a decree was issued to establish the basis for the domestic automotive industry, and another decree was issued in 1972 to encourage the export of automobiles, which gave rise to the development of the automotive industry and the auto parts industry, which today ranks Mexico as one of the main automotive producing countries.
