Mexico: Gateway to the Americas
Leveraging reform and opportunity in Mexico
Mexico is the second largest and most interconnected economy on the continent, as well as Australia’s largest trading partner in Latin America. Reforms by the current Mexican administration are opening new sectors and new opportunities to Australian businesses, while Mexico’s network of FTAs with North and South America make the country an exceptional gateway to the Americas.
This report provides a practical and timely examination of the opportunities for greater engagement by Australian businesses in a reforming Mexico. It examines the current business environment and Australian experience in the country, discusses the ongoing economic reforms and clarifies what they mean for Australian businesses on sector-by-sector basis.
The Export Council of Australia (ECA) encourages greater Australian commercial engagement with Latin America, and this report sheds some light on opportunity in one of the region’s most promising markets and an excellent base for expanding further in the Americas.
This report was made possible by our partners Austrade and the ITDFund.

“Our business is about making it easy for people to make environmentally friendly choices. We are looking to expand into new overseas markets and the ECA have been a huge help in this endeavour. The ECA have given us introductions to key businesses that can help us in the markets we are looking at, and their workshops and seminars on topics relevant to exporting were extremely useful. All up, our association with the ECA has been a great asset to Fruity Sacks.”Become a Member
