Mexico seen breaking export record to China

Mexico (Notimex) - Mexico's exports to China are on track to grow 17 percent by year end, compared with the record-breaking exports to the Asian giant in 2017, the Mexico-China Chamber of Commerce said.

Last year, Mexico's exports to China reached $6.7 billion, the highest figure on record.

This year, the figure could grow even more, showing the competitiveness of Mexican companies, said the Chamber's director Karla Loyo.

As an example of the dynamic trade between both countries, more than 1,200 companies took part in the Expo China HomeLife, more than double of last year.

Mexico's exports to China in the first quarter of this year reached $1.6 billion, similar to the same period last year.

The biggest areas of opportunity for Mexican exports to China are agriculture, luxury goods and environmental technologies.
