Actualizado: 23 de feb de 2021

Among the main exports of Mexico are automobiles, vehicle parts, computers, and delivery trucks. Mexico exported $ 441 billion dollars around the world in 2018 76% of its exports went to the United States, a truly impressive data that even caused the disgust of president Trump. Just .074% of the México’s exports went to the United Arab Emirates.

Mexico is a country that exports and imports a lot of products; refined petroleum, vehicle and automobile parts, are just some that we could mention, leaving the trade balance in positive by a small percentage, and other times neutral or negative. The country is not managing to export its products to their maximum capacity.

It is known that Mexico exports a lot of primary products, when developed countries prefer that most of their exported products have gone through a process of transformation or have some type of added value, in order to double or triple the price and obtain a greater benefit from that product.

In 2018, just over 4.1 million MyPyMes were registered in Mexico, classified in the manufacturing, commerce and non-financial private services sectors. The fact that it is not possible to export at maximum capacity may be due to different factors; however, an attempt is being made to solve a problem that the country is facing which is informality in jobs and lack of institutionalization.

Before wanting to export, companies must be institutionalized and with the support of the government it could be possible to finance these projects to increase production, process permits and to find the necessary mentoring to understand the export process and discover that it is not impossible to achieve that the products of a company go to another country. Mexico could focus on exporting products to countries that do not have the same climatic conditions where they can grow fruits or produce the same products as in Mexico, such as avocados, tequila, mango, guava, among many other products.

A country that imports up to 80% of its food needs, one of the highest GDP per capita in the world, had a percentage growth between 2000 and 2007 of 9% becomes automatically an ideal export market. We are talking about the United Arab Emirates. In 2018 they imported up to $ 232 billion dollars, among their most common allies are China, India, the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Germany.

The United Arab Emirates, a federation made up of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi (capital), Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Quwain, Ras Al-Khaimah and Fujairah; with a total extension of 83,600 km (4.25% of the Mexican territory), where more than 200 nationalities coexist. 90% of the territory in the UAE is desert and there is a big problem of water shortage causing agriculture to be difficult. Currently there is a policy of developing greenhouses to cover a part of the local consumption of vegetables, but it is still a sector highly dependent on the outside. Its natural oil and gas resources stand out as an important part of the country's commercial engine.
