The city of Wuhan in China and Merida are looking to partner and share ideas for business, technology, tourism and trade. Talks are underway proposing a possible ‘sister city’ relationship with Wuhan, the capital city of China’s Hubei Province.
Wuhan is a thriving trade center, sometimes referred to as the Chicago of China. Mr. Ji Lin, an advisor and minister of the Chinese embassy in Mexico, attended The Development of China and Mexican Relations Conference at Centro Cultural Olimpo as guest of honor. The conference coincided with Merida’s 473rd anniversary.
Conversations between Mexican and Chinese embassy representatives displayed a keen interest and willingness to cooperate on topics such as progress and technology.
“A smart zone is being discussed for Merida where sophisticated computer software and other technology could be developed. Joining together as sister cities would make developing the smart zone a priority. It is important that we make this a priority,” said president of the “Asociación China Península de Yucatán”, Antonio Yi Bai.
“Wuhan is well known as a smart city providing advanced technologies development, said Mr. Yi Bai. He is fluent in Spanish and founded the association prior to the current bilateral negotiations.
Other projects include promoting the Yucatán Peninsula in the Asian market and developing aquaculture. China could also provide investment, entrepreneurs, ideas and talent for Mexico.
Mérida’s city hall has already contacted the appropriate officials in Wuhan to initiate the sister city process.
