Interested in exporting to Mexico or Canada?

Meet Global NY’s Mexican and Canadian Representatives

On Friday, May 26th, Join ESD Global NY and its Country Directors from Canada and Mexico to learn about current export opportunities in those markets. Does your company want to know about sales channels, regulatory issues and/or how to find a reputable distributor? Did you know that Global NY has two grant programs that can offset the costs of your exporting efforts? Our speakers will cover these issues and any other questions you may have. You may join an organized roundtable discussion or request a one-on-one meeting with our Country Directors.

Top Reasons Why U.S. Companies Should Consider Exporting to Mexico and Canada:

  • Location, location, location: They’re our neighbors to the north and south, offering well-developed supply chains, consumer markets and manufacturers.
  • Less paperwork: NAFTA has eliminated most tariffs, reduced paperwork for exporting to Mexico and Canada, and increased demand for U.S. goods and services.
  • Economic reform: Recent economic reforms in Mexico have reduced restrictions for key sectors, such as energy and telecommunications.
  • Close ties: Our cultural, social and economic ties make Canada and Mexico natural markets to consider for first-time and expanding exporters.
