The Mexican Case
This chapter examines China's socioeconomic relationship with Mexico, and particularly its effects on Mexico's production structure, trade specialization and levels of employment. The author highlights the difficulty of this undertaking due to the very large discrepancies in data provided by the Mexican and Chinese authorities. He assesses trade patterns and bilateral investments, noting that the Export-Similarity Index shows that Mexico's and China's main exports to the US are relatively similar. The chapter concludes with policy proposals for Mexico.
