Approximately 25 companies, both those already doing business with Mexico as well as those seeking to enter this market, will be selected to participate in the mission. Participant criteria are online here, and the application deadline is September 13.

In anticipation of the mission, the Commercial Service has outlined the leading sectors for U.S. exporters in the Mexican market, and the Commerce Department is hosting a webinar on infrastructure opportunities in Mexico on August 22.

Exports are increasingly critical to manufacturers’ efforts to reach the 95% of the world’s consumers who are outside of the United States. The NAM strongly supports trade missions such as these that further opportunities for U.S. exports.
