The trade relationship between Mexico and China is mainly based on the import of manufactured products from China into Mexico and raw materials exports from Mexico. 

According to figures from the Ministry of the Economy, total import and export trade in 2011 amounted to US$58 billion, of which barely 10% were imported by China; which clearly shows there is a trade deficit.

In the first quarter of 2012 total trade amounted to US$26 billion; while official figures have not been uploaded to the webpage, the same ratio is expected.

More than 40% of imports from China are electronic products, such as home appliances, modular circuits, etc.; on the other hand, 50% of exports made from Mexico to China belong to two areas: crude oil and copper minerals and concentrates. This gives us an idea of the number of companies benefited from such exports, barely a few.
