  • Mexico is currently ranks tenth among Florida’s trading partners.
  • Florida Chamber of Commerce director: International trade helps our state create jobs and economic opportunity.
  • Florida Chamber of Commerce director: State is a global hub for trade and logistics.

The Florida Chamber of Commerce last week traveled to Mexico City to strengthen Florida’s competitive edge in the global economy by expanding trade opportunities between Florida and Mexico.

Mexico is currently the third largest trading partner for the United States and ranks tenth among Florida’s trading partners, with more than $1.6 billion exported to Mexico in 2015.

While there, Alice Ancona, Florida Chamber of Commerce director of global outreach, addressed dignitaries and business leaders and showcased the Florida marketplace.

“International trade allows Florida companies to reach these consumers and helps our state create jobs and economic opportunity, and remain the global hub for trade and logistics,” she said. “By joining Enterprise Florida on this Export Development Trade Mission, we were able to share why international trade matters to Florida.”

The Florida Chamber joined Florida Secretary of Commerce Bill Johnson, CEO of Enterprise Florida, along with representatives of six Florida ports—Port of Pensacola, Port Panama City, Port Tampa Bay, Port Manatee, Port Everglades and PortMiami—on the mission.
