Mexico trade is based primarily on the ability to export their products to other countries. They do not rely heavily on bringing in items from other countries in efforts to improve their economy. They rely on the fact that they practice free trade and are able to get their products out to other countries. Forty-five percent of the products that they export
go to the United States and this was made easier with the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement. By signing into this agreement with the United States and Canada, Mexico was able to eliminate many of the tariffs they would face previously when trying to export to their biggest trading partner.
