EU exports to Mexico were dominated by "machinery and vehicles", "chemicals" and "other manufactured products", which together accounted for 92% of EU exports to Mexico. The same categories accounted for 72% of EU imports from Mexico. At a more detailed level, "motor vehicle parts" were the EU’s most exported product to Mexico, while "cars and motor vehicles" were the main product imported into the EU from Mexico.
