Mexico Takes Step to Pivot its Economy Away from US
April 4 , 2017
Mexican officials started their talks with EU officials on Monday to update the free trade agreement which was initially signed in 2000. The desire for a new agreement was expressed by both sides since many years, but it was announced after Trump took office.
Mexican officials will be attending World Economic Forum’s Latin America Summit taking place in Argentina in order to restate their interest in buying goods from Brazil and Argentina. The Mexicans will mainly be interested in buying corn and soy from these countries. Mexico is the biggest importer of corn and soy from the US, since corn is a staple food item of the Mexican diet.
