While Mexican politicians are saber rattling with the US, the country seems to looking at Brazil and Argentina as an alternative to the US market.
A delegation of Mexican businessmen is set to visit these two countries later this week.
Juan Jense, Director of Consulting Agency 4E Consultoria spoke to Sputnik Brazil about the issue.
"If we compare the cars assembled in Mexico and Brazil, the Mexican-assembled vehicles will be of higher quality and they have more options for consumers in terms of automatic adjustment, vehicle configuration and so on," he told Sputnik.
Because of this, he said, Mexican businessmen think that they can increase exports by entering the Brazil automobile market.
On the other hand, he said, the restrictions imposed by the US on the products from China and Mexico may have a certain positive impact on Brazil's industry. The US is a vital commercial partner of Brazil and the restrictions on Mexico and China only increase the competitiveness of goods made in Brazil, he said.
