Canada, Mexico drive billions in U.S. commerce

Emerging markets tend to grab business headlines, so it may come as a surprise that countries bordering the United States represent far bigger market opportunities than the so-called BRIC nations of Brazil, Russia, India and China.

Canada is the United States’ number-one trading partner, accounting for $575 billion in annual, bidirectional goods trade in 2015. Mexico is second, with $531 billion in goods crossing the border each way last year. Cross-border commerce adds up to unprecedented opportunity for U.S. exporters.
