Who'd gain from a Trump border wall? Hint: Not Mexico

Who'd gain from a Trump border wall? Hint: Not Mexico

- As a billionaire developer, Donald Trump built casinos, luxe condo towers and lush golf courses. Now, as president, Trump aims to develop perhaps his most ambitious and surely his most contentious project yet: A wall along the nearly 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. How? At what cost? And who would benefit? Much remains unknown. Ultimately, though, experts say the project, if built, could deliver a windfall for some large construction companies and their suppliers. Engineering and infrastructure companies that have worked on previous government projects could capture a chunk of the multibillion-dollar work. Among them are Kiewit and Flour Enterprises. Subsidiaries of both have signed up as interested vendors.

Calling Donald Trump's anti-NAFTA bluff, Mexico is looking to get its corn from elsewhere

Calling Donald Trump's anti-NAFTA bluff, Mexico is looking to get its corn from elsewhere

- US president Donald Trump’s threats to upend existing free-trade agreements so far amount to bluster, but that’s not stopping Mexico from taking steps to protect itself. In a move to safeguard his country’s national interests, Mexican deputy economy minister Juan Carlos Baker confirmed to the Financial Times (paywall) over the weekend that his country is in talks with Argentina and Brazil to create duty-free relationships for corn imports. Mexico currently gets about 98% of its corn from the US. If those arrangements materialize, it will hit US farmers—the very people that Trump often says he’s protecting from bad trade deals.

Mexicans who help build Trump wall 'traitors,' top Archdiocese says

Mexicans who help build Trump wall 'traitors,' top Archdiocese says

- Mexicans who help build U.S. President Donald Trump's planned border wall would be acting immorally and should be deemed traitors, the Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico said on Sunday, turning up the heat on a simmering dispute over the project.
In a provocative editorial, the country's biggest Archdiocese sought to increase pressure on the government to take a tougher line on companies aiming to profit from the wall, which has strained relations between Trump and the Mexican government.
"Any company intending to invest in the wall of the fanatic Trump would be immoral, but above all, its shareholders and owners should be considered traitors to the homeland," said the editorial in Desde la fe, the Archdiocese's weekly publication.
On Tuesday, Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo warned firms it would not be in their "interests" to participate in the wall. But the editorial accused the government of responding "tepidly" to those eyeing the project for business.


Let's do a trade tango with Mexico

Let's do a trade tango with Mexico
- Mexico is fast emerging as a major trade partner for India. India’s exports to Latin America as a whole declined in 2016. But exports to Mexico have increased by an impressive 22 per cent from last year ($2.77 billion) and doubled from $1.56 billion in 2012. (see table) In Latin America, Mexico overtook Brazil ($2.3 billion) in 2016 as the largest market for India's exports.
The context is hugely significant. Mexico is keen to strengthen its economic partnership with large markets such as India, after Donald Trump’s trade threats.
The Mexican ambassador to India has invited Indian IT professionals to use Mexico as the base for near-shore US operations, after Trump’s H-1B visa restrictions.
