Tourism plays an important role in the Mexican economy, representing approximately 8.8% of the Mexican GDP and producing 4.1 million of direct and 6.5 million of indirect jobs. Although a positive trend in arrivals of international tourists to the country has been reported, the whole industry can be quickly negatively affected by the level of insecurity, lower economy performance, as well as by insufficient infrastructure. Therefore, it is important to search possible areas for improvements. In this article, hospitality efficiency of 67 main touristic centers in Mexico is analyzed for the period from 1992 to 2017. The results reveal low efficiency of inland touristic centers in case of foreign tourists, as the foreign tourism is concentrated in limited number of on-cost centers. On the other hand, national tourism is less centered, although on-coast centers remain within the most efficient. Therefore, there is clear opportunity for inland tourism in Mexico, which would stimulate the whole industry, as well as the Mexican economy.
Este artículo tuvo como objetivo calcular el rendimiento del sistema nacional de refinación en México para el periodo 2000-2019. Para tal fin se utilizó información mensual proveniente de Pemex, con la cual se construyó un modelo de insumos y productos que se estimó mediante el método Data Envelopment Analysis. Lo que se encontró fue que el promedio total de rendimiento fue 82.31%; 80.16% en Cadereyta; 70.11% en Madero; 91.50% en Minatitlán; 75.34% en Salamanca; 88.95% en Salina Cruz y 88.19% en Tula. En promedio los resultados confirman una ope-ración deficiente de la industria de refinación mexicana y contribuyen para que los tomadores de decisiones gubernamentales modifiquen este escenario de cara a la construcción anunciada de una nueva refinería en los próximos años.
Food industry represents an important part in the Mexican economy, including more than 400,000 companies and a Gross Domestic Product of around 16 billion of Mexican pesos in 2019. For that reason, this paper has the objective to analyze its productivity using data from the 2014 and 2019 Economic Censuses related to 2013 and 2018 economic indicators. The paper presents results of a productivity analysis of 1,672 municipalities from 32 Mexicans states grouped in eight regions using Data Envelopment Analysis. The results indicate significant differences between regions and, also, an important growth of the productivity in 2018.
