The meeting brings together journalists, experts, and officials from the country’s financial sector who analyze the economic potential for investments of the second Latin American economy
The potential of the Mexican economy to attract investment will be the focus of analysis in a forum organized by EL PAÍS this Tuesday. The event, titled Investing in Mexico, will bring together journalists, academics, financial sector officials, businessmen, and bankers to discuss the competitive advantages that the Mexican economy, the second most important in Latin America, has for investors.
The event will discuss the growing sectors in Mexico, as well as the challenges and competitive advantages offered by the North American country, which has the United States and Canada as its main trading partners since Mexican exports to North America represent almost a 35% of GDP. Although the Mexican economy has been hit by the coronavirus pandemic, the Mexican government has bet on a new economic boost with the entry into force of the new Free Trade Agreement (T-MEC) “USMCA”, as well as an ambitious investment in infrastructure projects .
