China, the second largest economy in the world, already represents the sixth largest export market to Mexico. At the end of the first quarter of this year, China imported from Mexico 13,611 units of Dodge Journey models, Cadillac SRX SUV and Volkswagen's Beetle, according to the Mexican Association of Automotive Industry (AMIA).

Arabia, the seventh importer, took 8.913 units of Nissan's Pickup, GMC's Sierra and Chevrolet's Silverado .
