Beijing (English) - - INFO -

2018 marks the 30th an­niver­sary of the es­tab­lish­ment of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween China and Uruguay. To mark this oc­ca­sion, the Uruguay In­vest­ment and Pro­mo­tion Com­mis­sion and Em­bassy of Uruguay in China re­cently co­hosted the Uruguay Week.

The pro­mo­tional week cov­ered a range of fields such as eco­nomic re­la­tions, trade, at­tract­ing in­vest­ment and boost­ing the coun­try’s na­tional im­age. Ac­tiv­i­ties took place in­clud­ing of­fi­cial ne­go­ti­a­tions be­tween lo­cal gov­ern­ments and a sym­po­sium on in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties as well as busi­ness ne­go­ti­a­tions and in­ves­ti­ga­tions. At­ten­dees in­cluded de­ci­sion mak­ers from Chi­nese en­ter­prises, lawyers, ac­coun­tants and lo­cal con­sul­tants, as well as Chi­nese en­ter­prises that have al­ready in­vested or are plan­ning on in­vest­ing in Uruguay or South Amer­ica.

Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs of Uruguay, Rodolfo Nin Novoa; Uruguay’s Am­bas­sador to China, Fer­nando Lu­gris; and Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the In­vest­ment and Ex­port Pro­mo­tion Agency Uruguay XXI, An­to­nio Carám­bula Sa­gasti, all at­tended the pro­mo­tional week, hop­ing to ex­pand Uruguayan busi­ness pres­ence in China.

China is al­ready Uruguay’s top trade part­ner with Uruguay’s ex­port vol­ume to China in 2017 ac­count­ing for 28 per­cent of the coun­try’s to­tal ex­ports. The 2017 China-lac Busi­ness Sum­mit held in Uruguay also made sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments and helped strengthen re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries. Over­all, Uruguay Week aims to strengthen Uruguay’s im­age in China through in­creased ex­ports, in­vest­ment and tourism.
