Mexico’s participation in the industry will be founded on competitiveness. Our priorities should focus on market diversification and investing in the areas that are important to OEMs and suppliers in the country. Under this administration, Mexico has worked on implementing a “light” industrial policy where the government only intervenes in matters when the market demands it. Our focus has been on four pillars: generating world-class talent, promoting innovation, supporting supply chain development and creating synergies between clusters. If NAFTA were canceled and we worked under WTO regulations, a 2.5 percent tariff in car and auto parts production would not impact us as long as we remain competitive. We must keep growing our capabilities for investment to continue.

The renegotiation of NAFTA has shone a light on Mexico’s true competitiveness as an automotive hub.
That Mexico is the seventh-largest light-vehicle manufacturer in the world
Analysis
The government and the industry understand that Mexico needs to evolve beyond manufacturing and into added-value operations.
