Global trade venture
February 15 - February 21
Mexico is the second-largest economy in Latin America and the 15th-largest in the world. A large, diversified economy with deep trade and investment relations with the U.S., it is also the second-largest export market for U.S.-produced goods ($265 billion in 2018), as well as for Wisconsin exports ($3.5 billion in 2018). Wisconsin exports to Mexico have more than doubled over the last 10 years, and they now account for 15% of all Wisconsin exports.
Mexico’s purchases from Wisconsin surpass Wisconsin’s exports to China, Germany and the UK combined. Mexico continues to experience stable economic growth, and recent economic reforms have liberalized key sectors such as energy and telecommunications, creating market opportunities.
In February 2020, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) will be leading a global trade venture to Mexico. Wisconsin companies are invited to participate in this program, which will travel to Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, as well as the capital of Mexico City.
