Colombian Foreign Minister Says Ties with China Key to Its Growth

BEIJING – Colombian Foreign Minister Holmes Trujillo said on Friday that bilateral ties with China are fundamental for the country’s growth in diverse fields, especially in food export.

Trujillo told EFE, at the end of his three day visit, that relations with China “is very important,” since it is currently the second major destination of Colombian exports and “one of the major source” of imports from Colombia.

“Relationship with China is growing, (it is) significant, (and) diverse, and offers a wide scope of growth,” he said.

He added Colombia was currently analyzing what role it can play in China’s Belt and Road initiative.

Colombia’s entry in the comprehensive Belt and Road initiative, he said, is undergoing “parallel discussion in Colombia so that at the time of taking the decision, it should result in a consensus among different institutions.”

Trujillo met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Vice President Wang Qishan, vice-minister of the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture, Song Jianchao during the first visit by a Colombian leader since Colombian President Ivan Duque came into power in August.

He also met with a group of Chinese businessmen and briefed them about investment opportunities in Colombia and presided over a conference at the Peking University.
