Thanks to its economic stability, rapidly advancing infrastructure and open trade policies, Mexico has been included in the MINT economies, a term coined by Bloomberg View and popularised by Jim O'Neill of Goldman Sachs. They are tipped as the next economic powerhouses.
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 one of the largest free trade agreement networks in the world, 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, including a business delegation headed by UK deputy prime minister Nick Clegg earlier in the year, it presents an interesting market for UK law firms and their clients.
This event will provide:
- Market intelligence: hear from industry experts, bar leaders and law firms on the Mexican legal services market and opportunities for UK law firms.
