Mexico imports from: US 49.6%, China 10.5%, Japan 5.8%, South Korea 4.5%

Mexico exports to: US 82.2%, Canada 2.4%, Germany 1.5%

It then becomes clear that Mexico, rather than a trading partner, is no more than a back alley into America. A global sweatshop used to elude American wages, taxes and environmental laws.
