Overall, Mexico has become the manufacturing base of North America due to its workforce and geographical location. Numerous multinational companies take advantage of the low wages and good level of education and the good infrastructure in the north and centre of the country for their production and manufacturing facilities. The main export goods are vehicle parts and (electrical) engineering components. Here, 80% of Mexican exports go to the USA and 3% to Canada. China and Germany follow with 2% of exports each. Apart from the crisis in 2008/2009, Mexico was able to record continuous economic growth from the 1990s until 2018 and is now an OECD and G20 member country with a GDP of 1223.81 billion US dollars. The country offers investors good conditions: Mexico has free trade agreements with over 40 countries and focuses primarily on the production of high-quality industrial goods.
