Mexico's economic, political and societal issues have become major points of interest to countries all over the globe. Mexico is the second leading market for U.S. exports after Canada, and is the third most important source of U.S. imports after Canada and China. The United States is Mexico's most important customer by far, receiving about 80 per cent of Mexico's exports, including petroleum, automobiles, auto parts, and winter vegetables, and providing about 50 per cent of Mexico's imports. The United States is the source of over 60 per cent of foreign investment in Mexico, and the primary source of important tourism earnings. Mexico is also the leading country in Latin America in terms of U.S. investment, with the total stock of U.S. investment being about $85 billion in 2006. This book presents in-depth analyses of such issues as foreign policy, political reform, and overall economic developments.
