Shanghai is Asia’s most important economic and financial centre as well as one of global relevance. Its port is the main point of entry for Mexican agricultural products entering the Chinese market. 

Sino-Mexican diplomatic ties are excellent. Thus far seven presidential encounters have taken place since President Enrique Peña Nieto took office.
