WHY LOOK SOUTH to Mexico and Central America?
From 2013 to 2014, exports to Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala grew by 27.95%—translating to a $15.38 billion increase in one year’s time. Even in small markets, we see big gains, including a $558.7 million increase to Honduras alone!
Along with the competitive edge of low or zero tariff rates, the many benefits of our free trade agreements with these countries include important disciplines on government procurement, investment, telecommunications, intellectual property rights, and transparency.
These markets’ economies are also highly resilient. They were less affected by the global slump in commodity demand than other markets in the region and benefit from being geographically close to the United States.
These countries hold many best prospects in key infrastructure sectors such as energy and transportation; for example, all four countries rank in the top 18 world-wide markets for near-term hydropower.
