Mexico sees China as “a strategic partner,” Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has said, pledging to upgrade the bilateral ties to achieve win-win cooperation. In a written interview with Xinhua on the eve of his visit to China, Pena Nieto stressed that Mexico-China cooperation has great potential and poses remarkable opportunities in such sectors as trade and infrastructure.
“Mexico can be a gateway for China to enter North America, the world’s richest market. It can so be a point of access to several countries in Central America and the Caribbean,” said the president, who is scheduled to attend the 2013 Boao Forum for Asia in China on April 6-8. “For Mexico, China represents an opportunity to increase its productive investment, and multiply and diversify its export capacity. China’s economic dynamism, the size of its market and its high demand for goods, turn China into an attractive market for Mexico,” he said.
