Country Profile

Mexico Country Profile

The Mexico-US bilateral relationship has been strained as a result of President Donald Trump’s administration and aggressive discourse, including the demand that Mexico pay for a border wall, an insistence on renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement and the deployment of US troops to the border. Nevertheless, the recent volatility of its ongoing relationship with the US has sounded a warning bell for Mexico, encouraging it to diversify its trade links and seek out new markets, and to that end, the recent Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership could serve it well. This chapter contains interviews with Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany; Sebastián Piñera Echenique, President of Chile; and Liam Fox, UK Secretary of State for International Trade.
