This article analyzes the degree of intraindustry trade of Mexico with its main trading partners, on the basis of official data at the 4 digit level of the Harmonized System for the years 1990 1995. Data are presented per region and product. It is found that this type of trade represents over 40% of Mexico`s total foreign trade. The analysis reveals a correlation between the volume of trade and the degree of intraindustry trade, and establishes a positive relation between the latter indicator and the existence of free trade agreements. A formula is introduced to calculate the triangulation of trade.
