Commercial relations of Mexico with the world

Mexico is a country that is characterized by its solid presence in the international trade scene. This is largely due to the strategy that our country has taken to open and diversify its foreign trade by establishing a network of trade agreements with countries and regions around the world.

Mexico trade relations

Currently alone, Mexico has a network of 14 Free Trade Agreements with 50 countries (FTAs), 30 Agreements for the Promotion and Reciprocal Protection of Investments (APPRIs) with 31 countries or administrative regions and 9 agreements of limited scope (Agreements of Economic Complementation and Partial Scope Agreements) within the framework of the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI).

According to our country, these treaties are designed with the purpose of promoting international investment flows and providing certainty to the operations carried out by foreign businessmen.

On the other hand, the countries with which there are no free trade agreements are China, South Korea, India, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, Russia, Indonesia, Turkey, Hong Kong, Venezuela and South Africa, although of course they trade with they.
