President Felipe Calderón and the Secretary of Economy, Bruno Ferrari, officially opened the Mexican Foreign Trade Digital Window, which will reduce processes and costs as well as strengthen the country's position for joining trade integration initiatives like the Trans-Pacific Alliance.

During the event, the head of the SE noted that the launch of the Digital Window strengthens the fight and defense against unfair trade practices, in addition to enabling the country to climb between 20 and 26 positions in trade facilitation indices. 

Ferrari García de Alba emphasized that foreign trade accounts for 60% of the GDP and generates one of every five jobs in the country, which pay, on average, 37% higher salaries than non-exporting company jobs.
“ One of our major challenges is to build a business environment which fosters efficiency in companies, significantly reduces their costs, facilitates the daily life of entrepreneurs and motivates research and innovation," he said.

The Chief Executive was accompanied at the launch by the Secretary of Finance and Public Credit, José Antonio Meade, and the head of Tax Administration Services, Alfredo Gutiérrez Ortiz Mena.
