Colorado governor sees lots of potential in Mexico

Commercial relations between Mexico and the American state of Colorado could surpass the level of economic activity between Mexico and Canada, says the state’s governor, John Hickenlooper.

He believes that trade could grow to be worth US $4 billion in the next five years, because of the opportunities Mexico offers. The figure currently stands at US $2 billion.

Sectors for potential growth are energy, aerospace and tourism. The governor said Colorado is number one in the U.S. in the field of aerospace while Mexico has very small companies in the industry.

“Companies in Colorado want to find partners for the manufacture of parts at a lower cost with high quality, which can be found in Mexico, and the same with the energy sector.”
