Import / Export Lawyer: EU-Mexico Free Trade Agreement (FTA) Opportunities

Mexico and the European Union have updated a trade agreement signed in 1997, by establishing a new trade deal that would eliminate most tariffs on the goods and services traded between Mexico and EU members. The trade agreement reduces the tariffs imposed on European food and drinks, allows EU companies to sell more of their services in Mexico, and protects worker’s rights and the environment. 

EU-Mexico FTA – What New Trade Opportunities Can the FTA Bring?

The FTA will open the agri-food sector, creating more export opportunities for high quality products.

The new deal will bring many opportunities to the agriculture market and benefit the countries’ farmers. Mexico secured liberalized access for its orange juice, fruits, and vegetables. The EU will have duty-free access for most pork products, pasta, and chocolate and confectionery. Total EU-Mexico trade for goods in 2017 was 62 billion euro and 15 billion euro for services. The EU manufactured exports to Mexico are worth 38 billion euros and 10 billion worth of exports in services. It is estimated that this deal will save EU exports 100 million euro in customs duties every year and would open the doors to foreign direct investment.


The FTA will create more trade, investment and export opportunities.
