Mexico City Business Travel Guide
The best hotels, restaurants and activities for Mexico City business travelers.
The geographical, political and economical importance of Mexico as an intercontinental bridge has turned it into a vibrant, dynamic and cosmopolitan megalopolis where business and trade are at the top of the agenda. However controversial or difficult to evaluate, the North American Free Trade Agreement — signed by the U.S., Canada and Mexico — has suffered from global changes since its implementation in 1994 and no doubt will undergo further changes in the years to come, but the openness of Mexico's economy is a testament to its historical ability to adapt.
Mexico's capital represents the natural entryway for the North American market. A booming manufacturing economy and a strong and durable base of natural resources that has opened up to foreign partnerships, provides the city with a crucial position in the concert of nations. Not only is the metropolis designated as an "alpha global city," it's the fifth largest economy in Latin America and possesses the 10th largest export economy in the world. It produces 15.8 percent of the country's gross domestic product and that number is projected to double by 2020.
The federal government continually seeks innovation in security, infrastructure and education to improve the quality of life of a developing Mexican population. The clash of social classes and the constant struggle between modernity and tradition that appears to play out on every street corner creates an incredible cultural backdrop to an avant-garde and sophisticated city that thrives on contrasts. Indeed, the city is rich in history and culture and has much to offer in the arena of the arts, with museums, theaters and a diverse culinary scene.
