Arkansas Manufacturing Solutions and the Arkansas District Export Council will be sponsoring a free webinar focused on expanding trade opportunities with Mexico on Thursday June 13, 2PM CST.  

There are 4 key reasons why companies should consider exporting to Mexico: 

  • Mexico is the 16th-largest economy in the world and has generally enjoyed slow, but stable economic growth since the 1990s. Economists expect Mexico to continue slow but steady levels of growth driven in large part by external demand. 
  • Given Mexico’s large, diversified market, most U.S. products and services have ample market opportunities.  
  • The United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), which replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on July 1, 2020, provides additional trade-related benefits for U.S. companies. 
  • Close cultural, social, and economic ties make Mexico a natural market to consider for first-time exporters and those firms looking for new export markets. 

Lauren Coughlin, Foreign Commercial Service Officer at the U.S. Commercial Service in Mexico City, will give an update on the latest trade news and best practices for exporting to Mexico. Lauren is focused on helping U.S. companies enter the Mexican market as well as helping Mexican companies invest in the USA.  She is a firm advocate for and counselor to U.S. businesses looking to expand their operations abroad, including market research, due diligence and the design and implementation of trade missions.  

Rudy Ortiz, Management Consultant, Strategic Business Services ,  assists companies in a wide variety of business-related areas as well as their International Business/Exporting needs and training. He is a Certified Global Business Professional as well as a U.S. Department of Commerce Certified Export and Trade Counselor and is fluent in Spanish.  

Who Should Attend: This course is ideal for professionals in import/export operations, marketing/sales management and customer service, and purchasing or logistics.
