With the T-MEC, Mexico wants to support the investment with Canada


Mexico is interested in strengthening the investment climate with Canada.Through the T-MEC and other trade agreements, for which it prepares bilateral working groups.


The Trade Agreement between Mexico, the United States, and Canada (T-MEC) replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which has been in force for 26 years.

We are interested in collaborating in a strategic relationship, strengthening our competitive advantages, strengthening the business and investment climate, and taking advantage of the opportunity T-MEC has given us.

Tatiana Clouthier, head of the Ministry of Economy.

For Mexico, the main advantage of T-MEC is foreign investment. Other benefits include promoting the growth of digital commerce and strengthening consumer data. Likewise, it will provide greater access to financial services and more opportunities for financial institutions in the country.

Canada and the United States recently denounced Mexico for not complying with T-MEC rules in the energy sector.

Canada is Mexico’s fifth most important trading partner; with a trade exchange of 24.3 billion dollars at the end of 2021. Also, Canadian foreign direct investment is the third largest source of foreign capital flows, with close to 49 billion dollars.

Mexico is Canada’s third most important trading partner and one of the nations with the most appropriate foreign investment, including in the energy sector.

Mary Ng, Canada’s Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade.

The Canadian government is interested in maintaining collaboration with Mexico through the T-MEC to strengthen economic growth.

We recommend: Canada and Germany to sign energy – hydrogen deal.
