Inbound services: Mexico business network (MBN)

Building bridges between businesses in Mexico and the United States

PwC's Mexico business network assists companies with expanding their international footprint. If you’re thinking about investing—or already have invested—in the United States or Mexico, MBN's bicultural, bilingual advisors can help you navigate regulatory, language, cultural and other business challenges. Backed by our global team of trusted service providers, we can also work with your organization to manage assurance, tax and advisory issues, such as mergers & acquisitions, due diligence, valuations and investment exit strategies.

Why invest in the United States?

The United States continues to be a great place for companies from Spanish-speaking countries to invest. Its large consumer base includes an estimated 41 million native Spanish speakers and 11.6 million bilingual speakers. Accessible capital markets, top research and development facilities and a stable legal environment are just a few advantages of doing business in the United States. Entrepreneur friendly, the country welcomes foreign direct investment (FDI), giving various incentives at the state and local level.

Why invest in Mexico?

Mexico is the fifth largest emerging market. Its privileged geographic location facilitates trade and investment across the Americas. The country is experiencing major shifts. For example, 45% of Mexicans are connected online, which has brought new opportunities for companies who are entering into the digital space. Mexico offers strong investment opportunities, largely owing to its solid GDP growth, inflation and increasing population. Greater political stability and reforms in the last years have changed competition in several sectors. Moreover, a robust tax system and numerous exchange treaties make Mexico one of the most open economies in the world.

The growth in Mexico’s middle class is among the greatest in Latin America, which translates into an increase in household consumption.
E-commerce in Mexico is booming, bringing new growth opportunities for the consumer goods and retail industries.
