5 Products in Which Mexico Is the Leading Exporter

Due to its geographical position, trade agreements, and proximity to the world’s largest economy, our country is an exporting powerhouse. This has strongly contributed to the widespread presence of the “Made in Mexico” label worldwide.

The importance of exports to our country’s economy is crucial on several levels: it fosters the development of local markets, incentivizes production and trade, benefits consumers, generates thousands of jobs, etc.
