Doing Business in Mexico
In June 2012, CME President & CEO Jayson Myers was in Mexico to sign a landmark agreement with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Mexico (CanCham), one of the country’s most important trade organizations, aimed at enhancing economic relations between Canada and its third-largest trading partner. This MOU signaled a major step forward in CME’s ongoing commitment to assist its members in exploring and succeeding in new, international markets.
In November 2012, Myers was invited to participate in a Business Roundtable with the then elected President of Mexico, the Honourable Enrique Peña Nieto. During that meeting, Peña Nieto and important representatives from the Canadian private sector and officials coincided in the importance of furthering the bilateral relation and cooperation in the areas of trade, investment, energy and immigration.
Working alongside strategic partners, CME’s goal is to provide Canadian companies key market intelligence, linkages and business opportunities in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. Let CME help you establish critical connections through customized matchmaking services and vital insight.
