According to the data of the Bank of Mexico, the commercial food and agriculture products surplus reached a new historical record by exceeding USD1,109 million in the first triannual of 2015, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA) declared.
According to the Central Bank statistics, the international sales of food and agriculture goods reached USD9,606 millions, and this represented an annual increase by 6.42%, whilst on the other hand, the imports, that reached USD8,496 million, dropped by 4.75% in comparison with the same period in 2014.
The increase in exports coupled to the decrease in imports has allowed to revert the deficit trend in 2014 and to generate one of the highest commercial food and agriculture surpluses in the last decades.
The main destinations for the Mexican food and agriculture products are US, Japan, Canada and China, as well as the EU, South America, Central America and the Caribbean.
