Trade has built unparalleled prosperity

Last week, the former Minister of State for Trade Policy, Greg Hands addressed businesses at the Prosperity Fund Business Forum. He spoke on how trade is the best and most sustainable way out of poverty.

“Better-run economies benefit everyone – more trade for us, more business for you [businesses attending the forum], and a route out of poverty for hundreds of millions overseas.”

Recently DHL supported an inquiry into how the Commonwealth could help developing countries trade out of poverty. The inquiry report highlighted the importance of improving trade facilitation and preparing for e-commerce. Download the report here.

Start exporting to Mexico

Mexico is a rising territory for overseas traders and it’s on course for a rich future. The combination of an expanding population, well-developed infrastructure, and its trading proximity to the USA have pushed Mexico into 11th place on the league table of global economies.

Mexico is the largest Spanish-speaking nation in the world. Its population of 124 million is still growing at around 1.25 per cent each year, around the same rate as India. A growing middle class has begun to look for products, both in-store and online. Find out if this could be your next trading destination with our guide.
