Mining Trade Mission to Zacatecas, Mexico

Join the U.S. Commercial Service on a Business Development Mission to one of Mexico’s leading mining regions!

Mexico is the third largest trading partner of the United States, and represents the second largest export market for U.S. products and services.  In the last five years, mining has been one of the five most promising sectors in Mexico’s economy.  Mexico’s mining sector produces 23 different commodities, with the major ones being gold, silver and copper.

The State of Zacatecas is a focal point for Mexico’s mining industry.  In 2013, in terms of production, mining output from Zacatecas ranked second among Mexican states.  Currently, Zacatecas is Mexico’s largest producer of silver, lead and zinc; the second largest producer of copper; and the third largest producer of gold.  Canadians are the largest group of foreign investors, followed by the U.S.  This mission will help interested U.S. mining equipment exporters meet with local government officials and pre-screened potential agents, distributors and representatives to explore opportunities in this dynamic mining market.

Cost: $2,000 (for large firms), $1,500 (for small to medium-sized enterprises) and $700 for each additional firm representative.
