The Federal Tax Attorney’s Office (PFF) and the Confederation of Associations of Customs Agents of the Mexican Republic (CAAAREM) signed a collaboration agreement on December 10, 2021 to combat tax evasion, smuggling and corruption in foreign trade.

The agreement alerts customs agents about the risks and consequences of tax and customs violations, and will develop the forms, mechanisms and conditions to create a compliance program, as well as related training, workshops, conferences and seminars.

Other outstanding customs, with the same measurement, were Nogales (208,000 operations), Guadalajara (198,000), Colombia (191,000) and Monterrey (177,000).

Mexico uses an economic development model based on increasing its returns from foreign trade. To achieve this, Mexico focuses mainly on expanding its total exports through various commercial, fiscal, financial and promotional measures to grow and increase the competitiveness of its non-oil exports.
