Canada and Mexico
The reason why i choose Mexico is that the relationship between Canada and
Mexico is very early and has continued to grow since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1944. Canada and Mexico are now among each other’s largest trading partners, with 1,828 Canadian companies exporting to Mexico.
After the United States, Mexico is now the most popular foreign destination for
Canadians. And it is also a priority market for Export Development Canada. In addition,
Mexico is the second­most important tourist destination for Canadians. In 2012,
Canada’s exports to Mexico were $5.4 billion, with imports nearly $26.7 billion.(from:Some facts about relations, trade and travel between Canada and Mexico)
In 2011, manufactured goods accounted for 74.6% of the value of Canada’s exports to Mexico, with resource­based goods accounting for the remaining 25.4%.
Canada’s highest­valued exports to Mexico in 2011 were canola seeds, electronic integrated circuits and cars, which together accounted for 28.3% of the value of
Canada’s exports to the country. The value of Canadian canola seed and electronic integrated circuit exports to Mexico increased from $333.4 million and $110.7 million respectively in 2006 to $838.9 million and $410.7 million respectively in 2011.
