Mexico City (VNA) – The ASEAN Committee in Mexico City (ACMC) recently paid a working trip to the central state of Queretaro to learn about business opportunities between the two sides. 

At a working session with Governor of Queretaro state Francisco Dominguez Servien, Malaysian Ambassador Mohammad Azhar Mazlan, on behalf of the committee, expressed his wish to bolster ties between ASEAN and Mexico, and between ASEAN and Queretaro in particular in diverse areas, especially in trade and investment.

Diplomat Doan Anh Tuan from the Vietnamese embassy in Mexico highlighted huge potential of cooperation between Queretaro and Vietnamese localities, especially in fields of Queretaro’s strength such as aviation, technology, education and agriculture.

He wished that the host authorities would create favourable conditions for Vietnamese farm produce, particularly rice and coffee.

Tuan expressed his belief that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s attendance at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation’s Economic Leaders’ Meeting in the Vietnamese central city of Da Nang will further strengthen friendship and bilateral collaboration.

Servien, for his part, pledged all possible support to ASEAN enterprises and expressed readiness to cooperate with ASEAN’s localities in investment, trade, agriculture, scientific research and training of technicians and aviation engineers.

During their stay, the ACMC delegation held a working session with Board of Directors of the Centre for Engineering and Industrial Development under the National Council of Science and Technology and visited Queretaro Aeronautics University.

Statistics showed that two-way trade between ASEAN and Mexico soared 115 percent over the past decade and hit 20.2 billion USD in 2015.-VNA
