Beijing (English) - - INFOs -

On Septem­ber 21, Vice Gov­er­nor of Uruguay’s Depart­ment of Florida, Guillermo López held a press con­fer­ence at the Em­bassy of the Ori­en­tal Repub­lic of Uruguay in Bei­jing.

To cel­e­brate the 30th an­niver­sary of the estab­lish­ment of diplo­matic ties be­tween China and Uruguay, Vice Gov­er­nor Guillermo López led a del­e­ga­tion of en­trepreneurs and ad­vis­ers in the tourism in­dus­try and for­eign af­fairs on a trip to China in the hope of fur­ther pro­mot­ing bi­lat­eral re­la­tions.

Mr. López said: “On this visit, we wanted to learn about the real sit­u­a­tion in China, be­cause of its sur­pris­ing de­vel­op­ment. Af­ter vis­it­ing Liaon­ing and Gansu prov­inces and Bei­jing Mu­nic­i­pal­ity, we found they are grow­ing at a rapid pace. In ad­di­tion, we would also like to help more Chi­nese peo­ple learn about the Florida Depart­ment. Through our visit to China’s cen­tral and western prov­inces, we saw many op­por­tu­ni­ties for co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two sides. Our 15-day trip al­lowed us to ob­tain prac­ti­cal re­sults and a clear di­rec­tion for fu­ture de­vel­op­ment. How­ever, it is not yet enough and we will con­tinue to fur­ther de­velop bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion.”

Florida Depart­ment en­joys a prime lo­ca­tion in the cen­tre of Uruguay and is the gate­way to other parts of the coun­try as well as Mer­co­sur (South­ern Com­mon Mar­ket) coun­tries. The depart­ment’s main prod­ucts are milk, meat, eggs, wool, grains and fod­der crops, and it ranks sixth in Uruguay in terms of re­gional GDP. It ac­cepts a wide range of in­vest­ment op­tions and pro­vides in­vestors with a favourable en­vi­ron­ment, through its In­vest­ment Pro­mo­tion Act, free zones, in­dus­trial parks and pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship projects.
