Market profile

Mexico’s extensive economic reform program has it on a trajectory to become a global economic power. Its proximity to the United States, globally competitive cost structures and openness to foreign trade and investment underpin its strength as an emerging market. Many major Australian companies are fast developing a significant footprint in Mexico across a range of sectors – advanced manufacturing, education, energy, food and agribusiness, health, infrastructure, mining and technology. Mexico is Australia’s largest trading partner in Latin America.
