“The flourishing market of the Middle East is a window for Yucatecan foreign trade, where exports can not only be textiles, crafts or agro-food, but also services such as information technologies (ICTs)”, revealed the regional director of Proméxico, Fernando Torres Parraud.
The official of the national export promotion system highlighted that currently the Middle East market consumes technological services provided by Yucatecan companies, especially in the field of informatics, such as the development of softwares and applications.
He added that these local companies have already marked a foreign trade route for the services sector as the development of information technologies (ITs), which has been well received in places like Dubai.
“There is an export sector in Yucatan that is in the field of information and communication technologies that do not need boats or planes for trading. Some companies are doing very interesting things in various countries. They are coming the Middle East with their applications and technological developments” he said.
He stressed that Yucatan is a regional reference on the issue of exports especially in the field of manufacturing and agri-food, therefore, the products are very well received in the US and European markets.
“The highlights are pork, which is exported to demanding countries in terms of quality and safety, such as Japan, Korea and the United States. Octopus is also sold to Europe and to countries in South America, such as Colombia. This is due to the quality of the products we have in Yucatán,” he continued.
Torres Parraud pointed out that, in view of the commercial opening with the United States, the diversification of markets must continue, because he assured that in this way it will be possible to explore new options for weaving commercial alliances.
“Although the main market is the United States, it is not a bad idea for companies to look for other markets. Mexico has a network of commercial treaties with different countries of the world, which is an opportunity that can be exploited. We hope there is more interest in this regard”, the regional director of Proméxico concluded.
