Is The U.S. Loosing a Golden Opportunity in Mexico?

Published on: Jun 10 2013 by Thomas Lloyd

Mexico's Economy, InvestmentWe all know that simple rule in life.  If you don’t grab a golden opportunity when it’s set right there in front of you, some one else will – and quickly.


Mexico’s economy, along with other parts of Latin America, is a golden opportunity for the U.S. And who’s waiting, ready to snatch it up – or perhaps already doing so?  None other than China.


I prefer to focus on the positive reasons why American business people and investors should be paying attention to Mexico, but at the same time, there is that possibility lingering that if we don’t act, we may miss the boat.


Read this from Canada’s Globe and Mail comparing what the U.S. is offering Latin America to what China is offering (my emphasis):


The United States’s principal offer to its Latin American neighbours is the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP offers access to the U.S. market to Latin American and Asian nations, on the basis of a triple form of conditions.


First, they must deregulate their financial markets; second, adopt intellectual property provisions that give preferences to U.S. firms; and third, allow private U.S. firms to directly sue governments of countries that sign up to the TPP for violating any of its conditions.


Talk about a heavily conditioned offer.


So what’s the Chinese approach? On his visit to the region, China’s President Xi Jinping offered more than $5.3-billion (U.S.) in financing, with few conditions attached, to its new-found Latin American friends.  … [including a] $1-billion credit line from the China Ex-Im bank to Mexico for its state-owned oil company PEMEX.


I highlight Pemex because the promise from President Pena Nieto to begin opening it up for investment points to investment opportunities; however, it looks like China may be beating others to the punch while they wait for the government to open up the company.


Now, the question for us is; are there real estate, investment and small business opportunities that we’re loosing to investors from other countries who are on the ball?
