The Mexican Ministry of Economy, along with the Inter-American Development Bank and ConnectAmericas, are hosting a virtual business roundtable event called Mexican Foodvenirs to help connect international food and beverage traders.

This virtual event will last four days, July 27-31, following the implementation of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, which took effect July 1.

Importers will have the opportunity to meet Mexican food and beverage exporters through matchmaking of registered attendees.

The event is free to attend, but interested participants must register before July 15. (The registration date was extended from July 8 to July 15.)
