Xi says China-Mexico relations have entered a new phase, and that the two countries should continue to boost bilateral investment and economic cooperation. He says the two governments should begin negotiations on the China -Mexican investment fund, and work together to build the China--Latin America Cooperation Forum as soon as possible.
Echoing Xi’s view, Pena Nieto said the consensus reached by the two leaders in June is now being implemented carefully in Mexico. He says Mexico welcomes more investment from Chinese companies, to help with infrastructure construction, and that the government will ensure that more Chinese products can enter Mexico.
Xi and Pena Nieto attended the signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding on the founding of the governmental investment working group. The two leaders also exchanged views on the revival of the global economy and increasing the role of emerging economies in global economic governance.
