Mexico city, January 27. If the government of the United States decides to impose 20 percent tax on imports from Mexico, it does not greatly affect Mexican supply in the neighboring country. On this, as reported by foreign media, said financial analyst, Professor of the National Autonomous University of Mexico Clemente Ruiz Duran.
Recall that the possible introduction of a 20 percent tax on imports from Mexico said the press Secretary of the White house Sean Spicer. He said that the way the American authorities want to pay for the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico.
"Yes, some goods will suffer, but, in General, the introduction of such a tax, the volume of import will decrease, as will not cause a strong damage to the import, as for the US, Mexican imports are very cheap," said Ruiz Duran.
this Mexican analyst said that such measures will definitely jeopardize the very existence of the agreement the North American free trade area NAFTA, created in 1994, because at the present time in the framework of this agreement taxes on trade between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Ruiz durán said that in order to give more accurate predictions, we must first await the outcome of negotiations that are now in Washington, the foreign Minister and the Ministry of economic development of Mexico, and only then will it become clear whether the country out of NAFTA.
in addition, the expert stated that it is impossible to exclude that its rigid behavior with respect to Mexico, the American head of state, Donald Trump tries to make it clear to other countries what can happen if they don't play by the rules of the United States.
