With 14 Yucatecan companies on board, this morning saw the start of the XI International Exhibition of Small and Medium Enterprises in China (Cismef), introducing local goods to Asian markets.

Gov. Rolando Zapata Bello cut the ribbon on the Mexican pavilion on the trade show floor. The head of the National Institute of Entrepreneurship (Inadem ), Enrique Jacob Rocha, stated that thanks to the revival of relations between the two countries, the level of bilateral cooperation has been elevated.

Zapata Bello said that at the fair, which takes place from Oct. 11 to Oct. 14, the delegation participating employers of the Yucatan is the third largest in Mexico, just after the Federal District and the state of Jalisco, with 23 attendees, so the chances of closing business is extensive.

The deputy governor of Guangdong Province, Liu Zhigeng, said that the exhibition is the largest of its kind in China, with more than 500 small and medium enterprises, so he appreciated the efforts of Mexico to participate as it is a privileged gateway to Latin America.

President Enrique Peña Nieto will be visiting in November to talk further about economic trade between the two countries.

In the event, which takes place at the Poly World Trade Center, are Yucatecan producers of meats, snacks, sauces, decorative pieces, juices, marble supplies for supermarkets, bikes, coffee, honey, galvanized metals, software and air condensers for cars, which will be on display along with items from other countries such as India and Japan.
