MERIDA – According to Notimex, a delegation from China, made up of officials from Jiangmen, Guangdong Province, visited the city to seek business, tourism and cultural deals with the Yucatecan capital, said Mayor Mauricio Vila Dosal.
After the reception of the visitors, there was a meeting in the City Hall, where the mayor and Fuming Liang exchanged information on the points that could be of interest to consolidate a commercial, cultural and tourist exchange between Jiangmen and Merida.
Asian visitors were very interested in the great cultural offer of the Yucatecan capital and also stressed that they have a strong interest in academic exchanges as well as tourism.
“I had heard a lot from Mérida through some countrymen and I finally got a chance to meet it and I think it could be the beginning of a much more productive relationship for our peoples,” said the Jiangmen official.
For his part, Mauricio Vila said that it is also expected that this visit will be fruitful in its results and allow to continue increasing those ties already formed between Merida and China.
After the meeting, the mayor and Mr. Liang signed a letter of closer relations and exchange in cultural, economic and educational matters, so that both cities improve their communication.
Mérida, in addition, will have wide diffusion in China through printed and televising means.
After the meeting, the general coordinator of Community Policy, Víctor Hugo Lozano Poveda, said that Mérida seeks to increase the number of Chinese visitors to the city and that they consider Mérida as a tourist option.
