Mexico Customs Process: DRAWBACK PROGRAM

The duty drawback program is designed for Mexican companies that import products from the U.S. – typically raw materials or component parts. It allows Mexican importers to claim refunds of duties paid on those imports, which typically are processed and assembled into a finished product, that are exported out of Mexico. The program benefits also apply to products and/or equipment that need to be repaired or modified after they have been imported under the definitive import regime.

CANADA- 1,400 KM TRANSMISSION LINE

Canada’s transmission network consists of more than 160,000 kilometres of high voltage lines. Transmission lines and related equipment carry the bulk supply of electricity in Canada’s electrical system. The desire to integrate more renewable power into the grid, build a smarter grid, and export more power are providing the rationale for action. The need for investment in the country’s transmission capacity is eminent. Older transmission lines are in poor condition and need to be replaced by new lines; new transmission lines need to alleviate congestion, improve system reliability, and move cleaner energy from renewable sources to cities. Power and transmission grids will be a good market for the next five to ten years.
