Doing Business With Japan
Mexico is Kansas City's second largest goods export market, with over $1 million in goods exported in 2020. Mexico's top imported goods are electrical & industrial machinery, and motor vehicles & parts. As neighbors and members of NAFTA, Mexico and the US have long been good trading partners. Learn what opportunities exist for your Kansas City business in exporting goods to Mexico.
This exclusive business round table will highlight the available opportunities, industry outlooks, and best practices for business success between Kansas City and Mexico. This in-person event will be intentionally limited to foster more robust and open dialogue. Lunch will be included.
Please park in the West Yards parking garage. Your parking will be validated. Take the Southwest Elevators to the second floor of Union Station to get to the World Trade Center conference room.
