Mexico and China aim to consolidate trade ties

Mexico (Notimex) - Mexico is seeking to consolidate its trade ties with China, the world's second largest economy that will export some $10 billion worth of goods and services over the next five years. 

That is the conclusion of Paulo Carreño, director of Mexican investment promotion agency ProMexico, adding that both countries' trade ties are going through a "good moment".

Mexico will be one of the 12 guest countries at the China International Import Expo 2018, with a delegation of 65 companies. 

The expo will take place from November 5 to 10 in Shanghai. 

During a press conference, Carreño said that Mexico and China's bilateral trade has surpassed $80 billion. 

Mexico has received more than $600 million in foreign direct investment from China and "we are calling for stronger trade ties," he added.
