CCE Puebla urges federal authorities to organize trade missions

Puebla, Pue. Of 500 exporting companies from Puebla, only 120 maintain permanent trade, and 80% is to the United States, and it is not seen when business trips abroad will be organized by the federal government so that local partners of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE) value or do not participate.

Ignacio Alarcón Rodríguez Pacheco, local president of the organization, said that in Europe, Asia, Central and South America they are open to having more business partners and they have seen this from the experience of businessmen from other states of the country.

He explained that the most active in seeking a commercial alliance are from the agro-industrial, textile, clothing and Tier 2 auto parts suppliers sectors, therefore, the federal government, through the commercial attaches of some countries in Mexico, must help to find the conditions for them to be linked through trade missions.

He considered that the disappearance of Proméxico was a mistake, because so far in the six-year term of Andrés Manuel López Obrador they have not seen that interest in organizing trips to promote national companies.

The leader reiterated that the proximity to Central and South America has been wasted, despite the fact that it would represent sales of over 1 million dollars for each company, according to those that have entered a country in those areas.

Alarcón Rodríguez mentioned that the signatures with proof of at least five uninterrupted years are from the Teziutlán and Tehuacán regions, as well as from the San Martín Texmelucan-Huejotzingo valley and the Atlixco region.

He indicated that the commercial missions generate 80% of possibilities to achieve a negotiation after the visit, which shows that there is an effectiveness of the trips, unlike doing it on your own.

He highlighted that the local CCE carried out trade missions at the end of 2021 and the beginning of this year, to Baja California and Yucatan to attract investment, but sees a potential for more firms from the state to leave.

“We need to find markets abroad with more flexible conditions to do business and in less time, which is what most interests the businessman from Puebla to reactivate this year,” he deepened.
