Go Global: Export Delaware is headed back to Mexico


Export Delaware is headed to Mexico again, and the best part is — there is room for you on the trip. We’ve partnered with our in-country trade representative, Miguel de Regil, who will prepare customized itineraries for each participating company. Miguel and the Export Delaware team will work together to ensure participants meet the right customers, distributors and partners on the trip.

Mexico is the ideal market for Delaware small businesses who are looking to grow their export business. Here’s why:

  • Mexico is a top market for products and services that Delaware businesses offer, especially IT, Bio-science, Chemicals and Agriculture.
  • Mexico is the 15th largest economy in the world and the nation continues to experience stable economic growth.
  • Recent economic reforms have liberalized key sectors such as energy and telecommunications, creating market opportunities.
  • Mexico has proven to be a very profitable market for Delaware’s small business exporters. Previous business trips to the country have generated over $10 million in projected sales for participating companies.

We can’t help but remember our first trip to the nation, back in the Fall of 2015. George Chambers, a new exporter, joined us on the trip and he experienced  tremendous success selling his solar water heating systems to five hospitals in Mexico. Read more here.
