In this video from April 10, 2016, a young girl from Veracruz explains why she thinks Americans should buy cars in the country where the government once imposed strict tariffs on imports from China.
“The car is the future, the best investment.
It will become the future of Mexico,” she says.
“If you want to buy a car, buy the best car in the world.”
A new survey from the Mexican Chamber of Commerce found that 63 percent of respondents thought that American cars were the best way to go.
And this was after nearly a decade of American politicians and pundits arguing about whether the Mexican economy is “dead” and America should just “go away.”
The Mexican government has been looking to expand the car market.
It has announced plans to build 500,000 vehicles a year, a goal that was first proposed by the previous president, Felipe Calderon, in 2013.
But the current Mexican president, Enrique Pena Nieto, has said that his administration will only consider expanding the market to a capacity of 1.4 million cars a year if the government can show that the car industry is “ready to be competitive.”
In addition to the tax incentives, Penaño’s administration has invested billions in improving roads and bridges, as well as laying off about 40,000 public sector workers.
While Mexico’s economy has grown steadily since 2000, it has not recovered from the 2008-2009 global financial crisis.
It is a relatively new sector in the U.S., and analysts are still trying to figure out how to best capitalize on its growth.
Mexico’s economy is expected to grow by 2.5 percent this year, according to HSBC.
