In recent years, the Mexican Government has taken decisive measures to further improve the business environment for international investors and traders. These include major reforms in key sectors, such as energy and telecommunications, and major investments in infrastructure. Mexico is one of the most open countries to trade in the world, with 12 free trade agreements that cover 46 countries. It accounts for 60% of the exports of manufactured goods of the Latin American region.

Under such circumstances, the Hong Kong Government has also taken action to enhance the bilateral trade relation between Hong Kong and Mexico. It has been announced that the Government has commenced preliminary work on the setting up of an Economic and Trade Office in Mexico, which will lead to more business opportunities for both sides.

To help members know more about the dynamic Mexican market, Damián Martínez Tagüeña, Consul General of Mexico, and Alejandro Garcia Casas, Trade Commissioner, will speak about the country's business environment and business opportunities, especially in manufacturing and sectors like automotive, aerospace and electric-electronic, where companies from both Hong Kong and mainland China have expanded their presence.
