Agriculture is one of the key economic sectors of Mexico, accounting for 3.3% of the country’s GDP, 12.7% of formal employment and 4.3% of national exports in 2018. During the year, it was also one of the driving forces of the Mexican economy, as its GVA expanded at 2.4% y/y, outperforming the overall GDP growth rate of 2%. This was on the back of strong domestic demand, rising exports and a series of government support programmes that pushed up average yields. As a result, Mexico ranked among the world’s top ten producers of a variety of crops, livestock and fishery products, including maize, lemons, oranges, pork, beef, poultry meat, octopus, tuna, shrimp and sardines. Nevertheless, Mexico’s agriculture remains highly dependent on the US market, which accounted for an overwhelming 79.4% of the sector's exports and 73.2% of agricultural imports in 2018. In times of rising global trade protectionism, the main challenge facing the sector is to diversify its export destinations.
