Why Start A Business in Mexico?

Mexico has a unique culture and business environment. 

In Mexico, there are 4.2 million small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that generate 52% of Mexico’s GDP, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography.  

Mexico is also the twelfth largest exporter in the world. Forty-six countries hold free trade agreements with Mexico, more than any other country in the world. Exported goods take up a bigger majority of Mexico’s economy than any other country its size.

Mexico’s top export is manufactured products, but it also exports silver, fruits, vegetables, coffee, and cotton.  

With so much international interaction, building a global presence in Mexico is not a difficult milestone for a small business to achieve.

Not only will your business have demand for your service or products inside the country but there is potential for demand to grow beyond Mexico’s borders and into the USA or Latin America.
