Doing Business in Mexico 2016

Top Five Reasons Why U.S. Companies Should Consider Exporting to Mexico:

  • Location, location, location – it is literally right next door, and has well-developed supply chains.
  • NAFTA has eliminated most tariffs, reduced paperwork for exporting to Mexico and increased demand for U.S. goods and services.
  • Mexico continues to experience strong economic growth.
  • Recent economic reforms have liberalized key sectors such as energy and telecommunications.
  • Close cultural, social and economic ties make Mexico a natural market to consider for first-time and expanding exporters.
