About the event

Mexico is the world’s 15th largest economy and is forecasted to be seventh by 2050 (PwC).

As a country, it has the largest number of free trade agreements (FTA) in the world and both the British and Mexican governments have indicated that continuing free trade between both countries will be a priority following Brexit.

Mexico boasts powerful global cities with different sector hubs making it an ideal investment and trade hub. With a population of over 120 million and a growing middle class, there is a huge market for British goods.

The opportunities: 

  • The energy reform of 2013 opened both the oil, gas and electricity markets to international players; and the Mexican government is committed to sourcing 35% of power from clean sources by 2024;
  • Mexico’s manufacturing sector has seen solid growth over the past years, particularly in aerospace, automotive, electronics and white goods;
  • Developments for food and drink sector – supported by modernised FTA with EU;
  • New infrastructure plan for the next sexennial;
  • Mexico is highly advanced in Fintech and is one of the few countries in the world to have regulation in place to provide certainty to consumers and companies.
