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
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.
Imports: Brasil, Costa Rica, Chile and Argentina. Exports: Colombia, Brasil, Chile, Argentina, Guatemala and Venezuela (in order)
