Xi Jinping expressed that he paid a successful state visit to Mexico in June this year. Over the three months, the consensus the two sides reached is being actively implemented with remarkable progress achieved. China-Mexico relationship has entered a new stage of development. Both sides should earnestly promote cooperation in all fields to unceasingly enrich the China-Mexico comprehensive strategic partnership. Especially to expand two-way investment as well as economic and trade cooperation, to enhance cooperation in infrastructure construction and other fields. The government departments of the two sides should create favourable conditions for investment cooperation between businesses of the two countries and for market access to each other.
