Got Euros?

15 January 2020

Mexfiles has argued for years (and was glad it was a goal fo the AMLO presidential campaign) that the country needed to expand its trade to countries other than the US. Via Mexican radio and a couple European blogs:

Uncertainly in Mexico-US trade relations has opened the door to more European Union investments.
According to the Ministry of Economy, as of the third quarter of 2019, 43% of all Foreign Direct Investmentin Mexico came from Europe, this is the highest level of the decade. On the contrary, US capitals accounted for 45%, down from 61 percent a decade ago.
