Exporting to Mexico
Export opportunities for Spanish companies in Mexico
- Access to the U.S. market due to its proximity and due to the North American Free Trade Agreement in force.
- Internal market of over 112 million people and a growing middle class.
- Broad range of free trade agreements with Central and South America, as well as with Asia and Europe.
- Structural reforms that will strengthen dynamic economic activity have been authorised.
- Good macroeconomic stability.
- Low credit penetration. Below the regional average (18% as against 35% of GDP).
- High percentage of the population below the poverty line.
- Its economic dependence on the U.S.A. persists, with 80% of its exports to the U.S.
- In Mexico, there still remains to be developed a large number of projects in infrastructure, energy, oil exploration, telecommunications, and transport.
- Demand for housing still exists. Demand for products and services from an emerging middle class. This turns the country into an emerging business market, which is highly attractive to Spanish entrepreneurs.
- Uncertain international economic and financial environment, both in the euro zone and in the United States, which may affect the country’s dynamism.
- Reversion of capital flows in case a sudden change may occur in the investors’ expectations, basically due to problems abroad.
- The country’s political situation. Future political changes that could be an obstacle to the application of the structural reforms recently approved.
