Mexico, Latin America’s second-largest economy, has been on a relatively steady growth path since 2009. Structural reforms helped Mexico diversify its economy and boost competitiveness. Mexico’s close proximity to the United States has led to an unprecedented boom in Mexico’s manufacturing sectors. However, the tide is now turning against Mexico. With fears that the new U.S. administration's protectionist agenda will become a reality, the country's economic outlook is becoming gloomier.
Please join us for a lively discussion as we address some of the challenges Mexico is facing in 2017 and beyond: What are the potential short- and long-term impacts on the economy if the United States imposes border taxes? How will businesses prepare for these disruptions?
