Samuel Garcia, the graduate of Tec de Monterrey, assured that in the north you work, in the center you administer and in the south you rest; however, this statement could not be further from the truth.

According to a statement by the candidate for governor of Nuevo León, the northern region of Mexico is the most productive in Mexico, the central states decide where it is spent and the southern region is the one that benefits without working it.

This was said by the politician who only accompanied his father to golf once in an interview because accused the most forgotten, marginalized, precarious, discriminated and poor region of the country of living in laziness.

“In the north, we work, in the center they administer and in the south, they rest. We listen to it and we are a little stunned, because it sounds very cold, but it’s real “, assured the senator with a license from the Citizen Movement (MC) party.

This assertion emerges in a context where the Federalist Alliance (AF) fed the speech of the revision of the so-called federal pact, which refers to the distribution of contributions from local governments to the Mexican state for redistribution.

“In Nuevo León, for every peso we give to the federal government, they only bring in 40 cents, but there are southern states that get three for every peso they give,” he said. “The governor of Chiapas or Guerrero, who says, the more my state is rubbed and populated, the more and more I use wool more and more, so I do not believe in these types of plans, for example, information on contraceptives to distribute ”, he stressed.

Far from the classist tone with which he referred to the inhabitants of the southern region, reports issued by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi) They reliably demonstrate that what García Sepúlveda said is a populist lie with more electoral than informative intentions.

According to the 2018 GDP contribution report by state, Mexico City and the State of Mexico, entities that are not in conflict with the federal pact, are the ones that contribute the most to GDP in Mexico. As if that were not enough, the national capital contributes 16.4%, which is more than double that of Nuevo León, which contributes 7.6 percent.

Later, if the table of the least contributing states is studied, we can see that the Nordic entities appear as Durango, Baja California Sur, Zacatecas et NayaritIn fact, these are below Oaxaca or Chiapas.

In terms of local development, the GDP of Quintana Roo and Oaxaca increased by 5.1 and 4.7%, which is superior to that of Nuevo León, which recorded an increase of 3.6 percent. Regarding primary, secondary and tertiary production, the diversity of the contribution ranges shows, once again, that what was said by Samuel García is a lie.

In nominal terms, Mexico City, the State of Mexico, Nuevo León, Jalisco, Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave, Guanajuato, Coahuila de Zaragoza, Puebla, Chihuahua, Sonora and Baja California jointly contributed 66.2% of the national GDP to base price in 2018Reads the Inegi report.

Regarding the main activities (agriculture, animal husbandry and exploitation, forestry, fishing and hunting), those who have contributed the most are Jalisco, Michoacán, Veracruz, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Sonora, Guanajuato, Puebla, the State of Mexico, Durango and Chiapas.

In regards to secondary activities (industry), the list is composed of Nuevo León, l’État du Mexique, Jalisco, Coahuila de Zaragoza, Campeche, Guanajuato, Mexico, Sonora, Chihuahua, Baja California and Veracruz.

Finally, in the tertiary activities (trade and services), the entities that contributed the most are Mexico City, the State of Mexico, Nuevo León, Jalisco, Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave, Guanajuato, Puebla, Baja California, Michoacán de Ocampo, Chihuahua and Tamaulipas.

With this, one can understand that Nuevo León has a particularly remarkable industry; However, both its local development and its contribution to the Mexican State coffers are not the most exemplary, completely disqualifying what was declared by the candidate for governor of MC.
