The importance of the phrase IMMEX in English is “International Merchandise, Machinery and Equipment, Importers and Exporters.” This clearly means a program for international-based manufacturers who wish to import parts and materials from Mexico, into the United States, so that they can be processed into various manufactured goods for export. It is a requirement by the United States government that any such imports must comply with United States legislation. It is also required that all such equipment and materials shipped to the US comply with the quality standards set forth in the Internal Revenue Code and other applicable laws. The main aim is to ensure that any merchandise obtained here is of acceptable quality. For more details go through our site TACNA.
IMMEX was first introduced as an experiment to assist Mexican companies increase their exports by offering a platform through which they could channel their production process and improve their productivity. The IMMEX Program in Mexico offers a standardized model of the kind, and is applied equally to all producers of good or service by any country. As a consequence, all IMMEX exported goods, regardless of whether they are destined for internal consumption or for exports, adhere to the same guidelines on safety, type of material, processing details, cost of production, as well as licensing and insurance provisions.
There are various reasons why the Mexican government decided to establish this type of exchange. Firstly, it sought to harmonize the trade between the various participating countries by bringing them closer to each other through a common market. Furthermore, through IMMEX, the Mexican government hoped to promote foreign investment in Mexico – an important aspect for development in the country. Finally, as a way to facilitate trade and economic policies between foreign and domestic producers, IMMEX assists with the monitoring and promotion of specific industries – something that no government in Latin America has been able to do so far.
The IMMEX program benefits Mexican manufacturers, exporters, and other entities involved in the export sector. It allows a country to benefit from foreign investment through a simplified process that removes many obstacles that were present before the establishment of IMMEX. For example, in order to obtain a Mexican visa, it was necessary for foreigners to make applications in advance, submit proofs of their legal status, and wait for several months before their visa would be approved. Thanks to IMMEX, this requirement is now eliminated. Furthermore, because IMMEX tax exemption and its corresponding tariffs are set at a fixed rate, foreign investors have access to these rates, making the process easier and more predictable.
Aside from foreign direct investment and improvements on productivity, the establishment of IMMEX also helps Mexico businesses achieve two main goals: provide local employment to local residents, and provide tourists with a cheaper way to travel between countries. Because Mexican producers are now able to take advantage of IMMEX, they are no longer required to restrict jobs and production based on the location of factories within the country. Instead, they are free to expand their facilities and invest in new technologies – both of which can lead to greater productivity, more investment, and ultimately, job creation. As a result, there is a growing influx of skilled workers into the country who are able to take advantage of any job openings created by the IMMEX program.
To ensure that the IMMEX program works as intended, Mexico’s Secretariat of Public Relations (S PR) has created a number of guidelines and informational materials to help foreign businesses establish an IMMEX partnership with the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs. These include informational brochures and seminars designed to inform businesses about IMMEX, as well as a list of companies that established or are participating in IMMEX. These companies are evaluated based on a number of criteria: their ability to source goods and products that comply with Mexican law, their licensing policies and their commitment to worker fair-play policies. Companies are also assessed for their commitment to transparency – meaning they commit to publishing information about their activities to the relevant authorities, such as the Office of the Comptroller of the Bank of Mexico (OCCAM). Furthermore, companies are required to submit audited financial statements and to conduct background checks on their hired employees.
