Chinas export boom has surged Chinese share in the global export market and has created general concern as to the threat China poses to both U.S. economic dominance and to the developing economies directly competing with Chinese manufacturing. The recent focus of Chinese investment in Mexican manufacturing has generated considerable press and commentary about the danger of Chinese influence in the very backyard of the United States. Concentrating on the maquiladora sector, this paper examines the actual impact on Mexican manufacturing resulting from Chinese competition, and the dynamics of the trading relationships between the United States, Mexico, and China. The increasing interdependence among the three nations presents a range of opportunities amid apparent risks. The author assesses and weighs these opportunities and risks, ultimately suggesting further research to investigate the potential security impact created by the increasingly complex economic bonds among the three nations.
