Japanese firms’ investment announcements in Mexico have reached more than US$ 11 billion since 2005
From 2005 to middle of May 2013, investments in Mexico by Japanese companies have reached more than US$ 11 billion. Mexico is attracting Japanese company investments mainly in sectors such as automotive and auto parts, but also electronics, metallurgic, machinery, agribusiness, food processing and high technology manufacturing.
In addition, Japanese companies in the energy sector have won numerous public tender projects in Mexico. Tender projects include the building and operation of electric power plants, natural gas processing plants, and waste water treatment systems for municipal and industrial clients.
During the first quarter of 2013, bilateral trade between Mexico and Japan grew at its lowest pace in three years, as global demand continues to weaken. In this period, the trade between the two countries reached US$5,261 million, an increase of 0.3% compared with the same period of last year.
