Excerpted from the Mexico Career guide
The construction industry in Mexico is a strong sector that contributes to the entire infrastructure needed for development in Mexico. The Mexican government plans to increase the volume of cargo using railroad transportation by at least 18 to 20 percent by the year 2012, and to build nine new interior cargo terminals, two new port terminals, one new private automotive terminal and ten new multimodal corridors. In the last three years, the government invested 14.4 billion USD in road construction and modernization projects, including 1.9 billion USD in public-private joint ventures. This year, construction will start on six roads with a total of 293 kilometers.
