(Yicai Global) Sept. 4 -- Mexico hopes to expand exports access for its agricultural products in the Chinese market and diversify the nature of products it trades, state-owned news agency Xinhua reported on Sept. 3, quoting Bosco de la Weiga, chairman of the Mexican Agriculture Council.
Mexico is an advocate of diversifying foreign trade, and China has a very important role in its trade diversification strategy, Mexico's Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food said. The country is optimistic about China's market and economic growth potential.
Trade and investment cooperation between the two countries has continued to increase, with substantive growth achieved in beer, tequila, pork, beef and avocado exports from Mexico to China, the Mexican government stated.
China is Mexico's second largest trade partner, a key source of imports and a major export market. The country is also a key Latin American trade partner for China and one of the continent's most popular destinations among Chinese tourists.
