MEXICO CITY — Florida this week sent its first official trade mission to Mexico in 20 years, and Yucatan representatives were in Mexico City to welcome it.
Yucatan and Florida officials agreed on the importance of promoting maritime connectivity and promoting the Office of Marketing and Agribusiness installed in the U.S., with the establishment of a logistics platform between the Ports of Miami and Progreso to strengthen the business relationship between the two regions.
As part of the Mission for the Promotion of Trade and Investment, backed by the Mexican Business Council for Foreign Trade, Investment and Technology (Comce), Governor Rolando Zapata Bello met with Secretary of Commerce of Florida, Bill Johnson, to point out the need to increase the number of frequencies in the maritime business segment, such as the Progreso-Panama City route and the creation of a Tampa-Progreso route.
In the presence of General Consul of Mexico in Miami, José Antonio Zabalgoitia Trejo, and the director of Global Initiatives of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, Alice Ancona Rodriguez, officials agreed to shore up the promotion of the Office of Marketing and Agribusiness in the American business community. Yucatan offers the public habanero pepper, honey, maradol papaya and seafood, among other products.
Among the actions that were raised is also opening soon a Yucatan chapter of the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, which will foster closer ties between companies of Yucatan and Florida.
In the presence of the Chief of Staff of the State Government, Eric Rubio Barthell, and Secretary of Rural Development, Juan José Canul Pérez, the invitation was extended to the governor of Florida, Rick Scott, to visit the territory and review progress and results of this bilateral exchange.
Meanwhile, Bill Johnson highlighted the reindustrialization process promoted by Yucatan, so productive and fruitful synergies between the two latitudes on issues such as information technologies, space aviation, agricultural supply and port traffic will be generated.
It is noteworthy that by participating in this event, the delegation of Florida made its first trade mission to Mexico in 20 years.
As part of the program, both delegations participated in a forum of Comce, where they exchanged views and approaches on opportunities and competitive advantages between domestic and international markets.
