A Sudden Change in Trade Policy in Mexico?

After the textile and steel industry expressed their concern about the omission to renew the temporal raise of tariffs, the Ministry of Economy held meetings with the industry and on Monday it announced new temporal (six months) tariffs (15%) will be imposed for 186 steel tariff items and, as for textiles and footwear, new temporal tariffs ranging from 25% to 30%.

 

These tariffs, though called improperly as a safeguard, are only applicable to products from those countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement with Mexico. According to the statements of the Under Minister (available here), the legal process for the establishment of said tariffs is expected to conclude this week. Today, in the morning edition of the Official Gazette, the Ministry did not publish the decrees; hence, they will probably be published next week.  

 

We highlight that the Under Minister, in the press conference, made statements that the Ministry of Economy is open to receive anti-dumping or subsidy petitions, that IMMEX companies are abusing of their rights, and that import licenses may be established for temporal imports of steel products.

Customs Reform in Mexico

In the first days of February, several news outlets reported that the federal government will present on March 18th an overhaul that that will impact the customs regime in Mexico.

There is, among the proposed changes,  a new customs laws, several business organizations have already submitted proposals of this new project in order to facilitate and eliminate provisions. Another aspect of this overhaul would be “political” since the Customs Administration Department would no longer depend be part of the Mexican Tax Revenue Service (SAT, an autonomous body), rather it will join the Ministry of Treasury.

 

According to this plan, the government aims to be more efficient in collecting taxes like VAT upon importation, particularly in the northern border that benefits from a lower rate,  avoid illegal practices, and facilitate trade, pursuant Mexico’s obligations recently adhered in the Kyoto Convention (the Senate ratified the convention on August 21st, 2018, but the text has not been published in the official gazette).

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!

  10. I think everything posted made a great deal of sense. But,
    consider this, what if you were to create a killer headline?

    I am not saying your information isn’t good., however suppose you added a title
    to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Mexico Trade Policy and Customs Overhaul – Trading Room – VTZVTZ is a little vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. Just
    my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
