Maquiladora in-bond manufacturing activities occupy positions of collective importance within many regional economies across Mexico. To date, empirical evidence regarding the predictability of maquiladora activities in Mexico has not been attempted.

Empirical results indicate that accurate forecasts of metropolitan maquiladora variables may prove elusive.
