Mexico is Wisconsin’s second-largest trading partner and currently faces a convergence of economic, political and social uncertainties. Companies with existing or potential ties to Mexican markets need to understand this situation and how it may impact their business. Join us for a timely discussion of these issues, including: the causes and potential solutions to violence on the U.S.-Mexican border, how Mexico’s economy is faring in the current worldwide downturn, and what steps U.S. businesses can take to maintain a strong export presence in Mexico.
