China Highlights Importance for Uruguay and Latin America
Beijing, Jan 10 (Prensa Latina) The President of the House of Representatives of Uruguay, Gerardo Amarilla, visiting here today, has highlighted the importance China has for his country, which is the main trade partner, and for Latin America in general.
In a meeting with Ibero-American diplomatic representatives, journalists and intellectuals, he stated that Uruguay and China have much to grow together, 'they complement each other and have unlimited potentiality, which can and will be exploited in favor of the development of both peoples.'
After commenting on how surprised he is to see the reality of the Asian country since his arrival in this nation yesterday, he criticized that media have often promoted distorted images of this second world economy.
He insisted on the value of strengthening ties with Beijing. When we begin our return Saturday to South America our agendas will be much more full of projects, he said.
Amarilla, along with a delegation of three legislators who accompany him, aims to strengthen ties with the Parliament of this country and contribute to the greater commercial exchange promoted by the government of President Tabare Vazquez.
He came here accompanied by Jose Carlos Mahia (Uruguayan Assembly) who will assume the Chamber of Deputies on March 1st, and Jorge Gandini, who will occupy the same post in 2018.
Uruguay has been negotiating the signing of a Free Trade Agreement with China.
During Tabare Vazquez's visit to this territory in October 2016, about 16 cooperation agreements were signed in different areas.
