Imports/Exports in Mexico

Overview by Globlatrade.net:

Mexico is one of the countries that most depends on foreign trade.  Foreign trade represents around 60% of its GDP.  Mexico has 11 free-trade agreements with 43 countries of the world. It is a member of NAFTA - the free-trade agreement that unifies the United States, Mexico and Canada, since 1994. The country signed a free trade agreement with the European Union in 2000 and a commercial agreement with Japan came into force in April 2005.

The United States buys 80% of Mexico's exports. Its main export partners are the NAFTA and the European Union. The main export goods are electrical and electronic equipment, vehicles, mineral fuels, oil and machinery.  Its three main import partners are the NAFTA, China and Japan.  It mainly imports electrical and electronics equipment, machinery, vehicles and plastic products.

In 2010, Mexican exports increased by 32% on the previous year. During the same period, internation car sales increased sharply by 76.8%, which may also represent a threat of dependency for the Mexican economy.
