Mexico is a neighbor and one of the United States’ largest trading partner. In 2018, Iowa companies exported over $2.2 billion in products to Mexico, including a diverse range of commodities, products and services. The ITO invites you to explore opportunities in this market through its upcoming trade mission to Mexico in February. This is a horizontal mission and is open to Iowa companies in all sectors. For manufacturing and service companies, IEDA will work with you to develop a detailed itinerary, including one-on-one meetings with prospective customers and potential partners with stops in both Monterrey and Mexico City. Meat and Agricultural groups will focus on Monterrey, the entry point for much of the U.S. meat imports. With support from USDA, the meat group will also travel to Nuevo Laredo to explore the border crossing.
