Larry Rubin, president of the American-Mexican Society (Amsoc), emphasized that trade between the United States, Canada and Mexico could reach $1 trillion in a short time, thanks to the current confidence in trade agreements such as TMEC.
“We say that in a short time (2 to 3 years), triangular trade could reach $1 trillion, which is very optimistic and we have to work together with political actors at the federal, state and municipal levels to eliminate this problem.” He commented at the conclusion of his meeting with Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, candidate for the “Together We Will Make History” party.
The businessman added that among the main problems are corruption, lack of respect for the rule of law, and political leaders must look to the business class as promoters and allies in generating well-paid sources of employment in Mexico.
He pointed out that the three presidential candidates said that they would respect the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, as well as their desire to further deepen trade between the United States, Canada and Mexico.
“We recognize that the USMCA is a great tool and has made Mexico the number one trading partner of the United States,” he said.
“The mission today is to unite Mexican Americans and emphasize the importance of this important segment of the population, as well as to strengthen the connection to their roots and the opportunities available to them on both sides of the border so that there is exchange over a period of 3 years. He pointed to a trillion-dollar business.
The head of the Mexican American Association ruled out any danger to who will win the presidential elections in 2024, saying, “We are very optimistic that the relationship between Mexico and the United States will continue to grow.”

The reality is that American businessmen have confidence in the Mexican economy, but if the rule of law needs to be strengthened, it also requires greater certainty from federal, state and local political actors, as well as fighting corruption directly, Larry Rubin said. .
He concluded by saying: “By rapprochement with the three candidates, we will seek to present very concrete proposals so that investment can grow and double at the end of the next six-year period.”
