Mexico intends to impose duties of 25 to 30 percent on shoes imported from China and other countries with which it doesn't have a free trade agreement. The country is also reducing the number of entry points for the importation of shoes and the inspection of the cargoes, in order to reduce counterfeiting and under-invoicing at the border. Mexico has FTAs with the European Union and 44 other countries. Vietnam, the second-largest exporter of shoes to Mexico, may soon be included through the Trans-Atlantic Partnership being negotiated by the three member countries of Nafta - the U.S., Canada and Mexico - and Chile and Peru with a number of states across the Pacific Ocean: Australia, Brunei, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam. Observers feel that it's not going to be signed before next year.
