MEXICO-PHILADELPHIA. Partnership Building and New Business Opportunities

Mexico-Philadelphia: Building Partnerships and New Business Opportunities
The bilateral trade between Pennsylvania and Mexico was US$8.3 billion in 2015. Mexico is the 2nd largest market for Pennsylvania’s exports. In 2014, these exports were US$4.1 billion, representing 10% of Pennsylvania’s total exports for that year. Some of the industries benefited from these trade activities are chemicals, machinery, electrical equipment, appliances & components, as well as transportation equipment. Trade covers not only final goods, but there is a growing and stronger integration of a competitive supply chain between both regions.
