The negotiation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership was one of the major explicit goals in the six-year plan (2013-2018) of the Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto. Once a draft of TPP is ready, it is worth discussing its possible effects into NAFTA and Mexico. This talk will analyze in detail the meaning of TPP in the context of Mexican foreign trade strategies as well as its connections with NAFTA and US-Mexican economic relations. The prospects of Mexican relations with Asia will be thoroughly discussed.
