Background

For decades, globalization dominated the manufacturing industry's landscape. However, the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and escalating trade and political tensions between China and the United States, underscored the critical need for more resilient global production processes. In response, nearshoring emerged as a strategic solution. By shifting all or part of their supply chain, companies can reduce lead times from weeks or months to just days. Moving away from distant suppliers allows for direct engagement with domestic suppliers, fostering closer coordination and greater transparency in operations.

When considering supply chain regionalization, Mexico stands out as a key location offering competitive production and service costs while being strategically situated close to the United States. The economic relationship between Mexico and the United States is a significant factor in driving prosperity and growth for both nations. It is worth noting that Mexico is the largest trading partner of its northern neighbour, with over 80 per cent of its exports flowing into the United States.

The upcoming seminar in Stockholm aims to equip Swedish companies with the insights, strategies, and connections needed to navigate the complexities of North American expansion successfully. Join us as we unravel the opportunities, confront the challenges, and chart a course towards sustainable growth and prosperity in Mexico's dynamic manufacturing market.

Agenda 

Jenny Engström, Country Manager and Trade Commissioner of Mexico, Nicolas Urbina, Project Manager of Mexico and Johan Karlberg, Business Development Director of the United States, will host the seminar
