“We will invite Chinese businesses to participate in the VII China-Latin America and Caribbean Business Summit set to be held in Costa Rica in November,” González said.
After the China tour the mission will travel to India, where they will visit Bangalore and Delhi.
In India the tour will include promotional events at business fairs and meetings with potential investors, particularly in the services sector.
