From a recent report by the Congressional Research Service:

"a U.S. State Department survey conducted in July 2010 [stated] that a third of U.S. companies operating in Mexico had been affected by crime (usually either blackmail and kidnapping) and one-half had been affected by the government’s drug war with the traffickers" (June S. Beittel, Mexico’s Drug Trafficking Organizations: Source and Scope of the Rising Violence. Jan 7, 2011). For the complete report go to: http://assets.opencrs.com/rpts/R41576_20110107.pdf
