Thanks Khublai, where did you find the information? Is it from the IMF? I'm curious because most sources list the three or four major partners and most of Mexico's trade is with countries outside of Latin America. As of 2013, Mexico's main imports are: metallic products, machinery and equipment (50% of total imports), mining products (13 percent), chemical products (6.3) and plastic and rubber products (6%). Mexico's main import partners are: United States (51%), China (16%) and Japan (5%). In terms of exports, cars and related products now make up 24% of the total, oil and related products make up 14%, and agricultural products make up 3%. Mexico´s main export partners are the United States (78%) followed by Canada (3%). Source: http://www.tradingeconomics.com/mexico/exports

Indeed those are our country's main world partnerts. Regarding Latin America only the ones enlisted have a "relevant" amount of trade with us (our biggest Latin American import trade partner -Brasil- trades 38 times less than the Mexico-US amount). I got these statistics from the official Ministry of Economy web page: http://www.economia.gob.mx/comunidad-negocios/comercio-exterior/informac...

Thank you, Khublai, and Robin. My question was predicated on curiousity about whether Mexico's trading partners--other than the U.S. and Canada--were the smaller Central American economies or those of the larger South American economies. Both answers addressed my interest and elevated the content of my thinking. So, thanks again.
