Mexico and New Zealand agree to strengthen their trade relations
According to ‘La Jornada’, Mexico and New Zealand signed a collaboration agreement to strengthen the cooperation and exchange of agro-food products.
This agreement was consolidated in a meeting between the head of the Secretariat of Agriculture and Rural Development, Victor Villalobos Arámbula, and the New Zealand Minister of Trade and Export promotion of NZ, David Parker. During this meeting it was agreed, according to ‘La Jornada’, that New Zealand was going to share with Mexico its experience and actions undertaken in the management of productive projects and community development.
This agreement has been carried out because Mexico is a major exporter of canned fruit in New Zealand, as well as other products such as sauces, bananas, beer, etc.
Mexico and New Zealand unite to fight greenhouse gas emissions
‘La Jornada’ also highlights that New Zealand will invite scientists from the National Institute of Forestry, Agricultural and Livestock Research (INIFAP), and other Mexican academic institutions to join the work of the Global Alliance for Agriculture-related greenhouse Gas (GHG) research, which brings together research centers from more than 56 countries. This is because it is estimated that agriculture is responsible for about 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions, a volume similar to that originated by the transport sector, says ‘Ecologistas en Acción’.
The New Zealand Minister also invited Mexico to participate in the agricultural and Livestock Fair ‘ Field Days ‘, the largest exhibition of the agricultural industry in NZ, to be held between 12 and 15 June 2019.
