Possibilities for Finnish Companies
Mexico is Latin America’s second largest economy with 123 Million inhabitants. The country is strongly investing in circular economy, in renewable energy, in water management and in waste management technologies. The predominant needs and challenges of the Mexican authorities, businesses and consumers are improved water conservation technologies, adequate supply of electricity and both organic and nonorganic waste management. The full scope of circulation economy is rapidly emerging in Mexico, hence presenting significant business possibilities to Finnish companies.
