Mexico’s large industrial base, geographic proximity to the North American market and low external debt spurred the country’s economic turnaround after a downturn in 2013. Mexico has free trade agreements with 46 countries and their $2.2 trillion economy has become increasingly oriented toward manufacturing since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
As the US’s second largest export market, Mexico is a critical trading partner and worth exploring during your time at LFGSM.
