Mexico Mission Date Change

The dates of the Wisconsin Department of Commerce Business Mission to Mexico have been changed to give participants the opportunity to attend one of two important industry trade shows: Enviro-Pro in Mexico City, September 27-29, and Eximueble in Monterrey, September 28-30. The mission will also be making a stop in Guadalajara, capital of Wisconsin's sister-state of Jalisco. The mission will depart Wisconsin on September 24 and return on September 30. It is open to all Wisconsin exporters interested in establishing or expanding their sales in Mexico.

Mexican government and business leaders are recognizing the need to address pollution problems that have been allowed to build up over the years. The market for clean-up and abatement equipment and technology has never been stronger. Mexico's growing middle class has increased the demand for Wisconsin-made consumer goods such as furniture that will be showcased at the Eximueble show. Last year, Wisconsin exports to Mexico in all categories were up 25 percent, on top of 35 percent and 10 percent growth in 2004 and 2003 respectively.

Wisconsin's trade office in Mexico City will arrange business appointments for mission participants with pre-qualified prospective representatives, distributors or clients. You will have the opportunity to travel with other local exporters, sharing expertise, and learning best practices. For more information about the mission or other opportunities in the Mexican market, please contact our Latin America Specialist, Susan Dragotta, (262) 691-5147.
