Import tariff

On August 18, 2010, the Mexican Government increased the number of US products subjected to retaliatory duties.
 
The retaliatory duties were originally implemented on March 19, 2009, against 89 US agricultural and industrial products in response to the United States' failure to comply with its commitments under the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to allow Mexican cross-border trucking services in border states by 1995 and within its entire territory by 2000.
 
A NAFTA panel ruled in favor of Mexico in 2001. The US subsequently implemented a pilot program beginning September 2007, but the US Congress withdrew funding for the program on March 2009. This prompted Mexican authorities to first impose retaliatory duties.
 
The new list includes 99 products: 26 of them are new, such as: apples, pork; and sweet corn -Mexico imported 996 million dollars of these US products in 2008-; and 16 more were eliminated.
