Mexico trade association establishes office in Vietnam

Mexico City, March 16 (VNA) – ANIERM, a Mexican import-export association, has recently inaugurated representative offices in 45 countries, including Vietnam.

According to ANIERM President Arturo Perez Behr, these agencies aim to support Mexican enterprises in seizing trade opportunities overseas, particularly following the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.

Founded in 1944, ANIERM is a non-profit organisation working to facilitate local import, export, logistics and other services.

As a result of a working session between the Vietnamese Embassy’s trade office and ANIERM leaders on Feb. 8, a Mexican business delegation is scheduled to visit Vietnam in May to seek partnerships.

Vietnam and Mexico established diplomatic relations on May 19, 1975 and since then the politic-diplomatic relationship between the two countries has developed both bilaterally and multilaterally.

Two-way trade has seen strong growth with Mexico being Vietnam’s second largest trade partner in South America, behind only Brazil. Meanwhile, Vietnam is Mexico’s 12th largest trade partner in the Asian-Pacific region.
