Did you know we have Idaho Commerce employees dedicated to helping your company do business in Mexico?
The State of Idaho-Mexico Trade Office opened in 1994 in order to serve as a bridge between Mexico and Idaho’s business communities. The office provides in-depth market research assistance and works hand-in-hand with Idaho companies interested in exporting agricultural and commercial products to Mexico, as well as companies looking to source materials or explore manufacturing opportunities in the region. In addition, the Trade Office works to strengthen Idaho-Mexico relations in order to create jobs and expand Idaho’s presence in Mexico and Central America.
In March 2017, Fabiola McClellan was named the new director of the Mexico Trade Office. During her tenure, bilateral trade has increased over 16 percent; total trade in 2019 was valued at $482,947,333 (US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis). More specifically, Idaho exported $258 million worth of goods and services to Mexico in 2019, becoming the state’s fourth-largest trading partner behind Canada, Taiwan, and Singapore (Ibid).
The Mexico Trade Office looks forward to continuing to work with SWIMA/IMA because we know that our increased collaboration will solidify Idaho manufacturing’s presence in Mexico. In the coming months, the Trade Office looks forward to continuing to share and explore new manufacturing opportunities that we expect to arise as part of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which goes into effect on July 1, 2020.
