Unexpected Number

The country with the largest share of foreign investment in Mexico over the first six months of 2010 is none other than Holland, with 57 percent of the total, followed by the US (29 percent) and Spain (8 percent). So, what are the enormous investments by Dutch firms that I'm forgetting about?

Also, the total number of FDI was 27 percent higher in the first six months of 2010 than in 2009.

Update: From the department of Duh: Aguachile reminds me in comments of the Heineken purchase of Femsa in January.

Beer! Heineken bought FEMSA in January... should account for a big chunk of the Dutch foreign investment.

It was also in the article's third paragraph, jaja not the best example of thorough reading on my part.
