Thanks to its economic stability, political maturity and open trade policies, Mexico has been identified by Goldman Sachs as one of the ‘Next 11’ emerging economies. The firm predicts that, alongside the BRIC countries, Mexico will be one of the world’s largest economies by the middle of the 21st century.
A wide range of sectors offer investment opportunities for international companies including banking and financial services, insurance and reinsurance, infrastructure, energy and telecommunications.
Mexico’s location between the US and Latin America and its trade agreements with its neighbours mean it can act as a gateway into other markets in the Americas for UK companies. With political commitments from both Mexican and British government to strengthen trade and investment ties, it presents an interesting market for UK law firms and their clients.
