This was the first time that Qiu Xiaoqi, China's ambassador to Mexico, visited Ciudad Juarez
China's ambassador to Mexico, Qiu Xiaoqi, was in Ciudad Juarez to meet with officials from the three levels of government, as well as local businessmen and Chinese entrepreneurs who have invested in the border city.
Juarez has historically been a city of great interest to those with business concerns. The quality of labor, geostrategic position and development opportunities have always generated an environment conducive to investors.
Armando Cabada, mayor of Ciudad Juarez, emphasized the work he has done, among which he emphasizes reducing the process for opening businesses: “We have worked to facilitate the work of entrepreneurs. We are convinced that by creating an environment suitable for business, our city will have social benefits that will indicate the road to success for all the people of Ciudad Juarez.”
For his part, Qiu Xiaoqi mentioned that in the last have arrived in Juarez an important group of Chinese businessmen, which demonstrates the great interest of this Asian country in promoting investments in the northern border of Mexico.
“In recent years, relations between the two countries have developed rapidly. Currently, Mexico is China's second largest trading partner in Latin America and China is Mexico's second largest trading partner worldwide and although bilateral trade is quite large, China's major investment in Mexico is lacking,” said Qiu Xiaoqi.
As well as being a major recipient of foreign investment, this Asian country has also become a major source of investment to different parts of the world.
In addition to Qiu Xiaoqi, China's ambassador to Mexico, were present: Armando Cabada, mayor of Ciudad Juarez; Carlos Yates, director of ProMexico in the State of Chihuahua; Ramon Galindo, Undersecretary of State Government; Ricardo Mora, CEO of Technology Hub; Martin Flores, director of INDEX Juarez; Manuel Sotelo, director of Grupo Sotelo; Jesus Andrade Sanchez-Mejorada, president of COPARMEX Juarez; Hector Nunez, president of Economic Development of the North A. C .; Jaime Campos, director of industry of the Ministry of Innovation and Economic Development of the state government; Humberto Alvarez, general director of Economic Development of the municipal government of Ciudad Juarez; Roberto Renteria, secretary of the City Council; as well as other distinguished personalities.
Importantly, Qiu Xiaoqi, China's ambassador congratulated ProMexico through the State director in Chihuahua, Carlos Yates, for the tenth anniversary of promoting trade and investment. Likewise, the ambassador assured that they will continue collaborating together to generate new ways of business between both countries.
