The Economic Affairs Division of the Mexican Embassy in Israel provides advice and support to those Mexican companies seeking to export their products and/or services to Israel, as well as to Israeli companies interested in producing and market their products and/or services in Mexico.
Israel represents a strategic market for Mexico because, despite the small size of its population, it enjoys high purchasing power. According to data from the Ministry of Economy (SE), in 2020, Israel was Mexico's 45th trading partner worldwide and 1st among the Middle East countries.
