The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City issued this news release on Sept. 7, 2016:
MEXICO CITY – The U.S. Embassy’s Foreign Commercial Service welcomed 19 U.S. companies to Mexico this week as part of a U.S. government-led trade mission to Latin America.
The companies visited Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey, meeting with Mexican government leaders and businesses in an effort to facilitate new binational business deals. The delegation is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Trade Winds—Latin America trade mission, which is bringing over 100 U.S. companies and organizations to seven markets in Latin America.
Trade Winds facilitated more than 100 business-to-business meetings between the U.S. delegation and Mexican companies and investors.
“The United States and Mexico have a historic trade relationship that has brought economic benefits to both sides of the border,” said U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Roberta S. Jacobson. “Trade missions like Trade Winds help more U.S. companies do business here and encourage more Mexican businesses to invest in the United States. That commercial interaction creates jobs and supports growth in both of our countries.”
This is the ninth year of the Trade Winds trade mission and the second year it has come to Mexico. In 2010, the trade mission supported more than $15 million in business deals in Mexico and surrounding markets.
“President Obama has made the U.S.-Mexico business relationship a key priority,” Jacobson added. “There is no other relationship of greater importance than our relationship with Mexico. This trade mission is an important step for our mutual prosperity, following up on the successes of NAFTA and leading up to continued growth through the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.”
The trade mission will ultimately stop at seven countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. The Commerce Department and Embassy teams expect to facilitate about 400 total business-to-business meetings during the trade mission.
