Among Mexico’s lesser-known trade partners are numerous African nations, and currently, the federal government is seeking to increase Mexican exports to that continent. In a statement published last Saturday, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (SADER) noted that it has been collaborating with the government of Nigeria in order to increase the shipment of Mexican products to the country.

SADER issued a statement saying: “… Currently, Mexico trades food with Nigeria, Benin, Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Uganda, Egypt, Morocco, Zimbabwe, Kenya, South Africa, Mozambique, Ghana, Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Middle Eastern nation of Oman.”

The products shipped between Mexico and those countries include sesame, hibiscus flowers, rice, strawberries, corn, apples, cacao, walnuts, pears tobacco, chicken, lobsters, sea bream (mojarra) and sardines, the ministry said.
