THE MEXICAN AUTO INDUSTRY – LOOKING FORWARD

The automotive sector is one of Mexico’s most significant industries, employing over one million people throughout the country. Auto production in the country started with Buick in 1921 and Ford in 1925. The country is the sixth-largest passenger vehicle manufacturer in the world, producing 3.7 million cars in 2019, and the Mexican Automotive Industry Association estimates that Mexico will become the fifth-largest worldwide vehicle producer by 2025.

Almost 90 percent of vehicle production in Mexico is devoted to exports, with 79 percent going to the United States. Mexico is the fifth-largest producer of auto parts worldwide and is the largest export market for US auto parts. US parts manufacturers operating in Mexico represent 18 percent of all companies in this sector. FDI inflows to Mexico in 2019 were $33 billion, with the manufacturing sector absorbing 47 percent, or $16 billion, driven by the automotive industry, which represented 21 percent of the total.

Those figures were for 2019 – pre COVID-19 and the USMCA. How has COVID affected the industry and its supply chain, and what will be the effects of the new Rules of Origin of USMCA on the industry in North America going forward? Our speakers will give us some insight!

MEXICO’S NICHE & CULTURAL IMMERSION TRAVEL: EARLY RESILIENCE AND LONGER-TERM OUTLOOK

The United States – Mexico Chamber of Commerce, Northeast Chapter, invites you to join us for a videoconference discussion on

Mexico’s Niche & Cultural Immersion Travel:

Early Resilience and Longer-Term Outlook – NY

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

4:30 PM- 5:40 PM (Eastern Time)

Travel and Tourism has been one of the hardest-hit industries by COVID-19 and its rebound is expected to be uneven and at a different pace for each of its segments.
Customized and cultural tourism, particularly in the higher income subsegment, has shown to be more resilient against the pandemic and expected to have an earlier recovery when compared to general market tourism. The decrease in global luxury tourism revenues is forecasted to be less pronounced than other segments.
Mexico has been gaining international recognition and increasing its offer for this specific segment. Likewise, public and private sectors are coordinating efforts to adapt and comply with standards aimed at a fast recovery and to continue with infrastructure development and investment attraction to meet medium and long-term recovery, positioning and growth goals.
Hear from industry leaders and authorities about the perspectives of resilience and development, as well as business and investment challenges and opportunities in this market segment of the tourism industry for niche and higher income travelers.
