Urtubey, a governor interested in strengthening international relations
The governor of Salta, Juan Manuel Urtubey received a delegation from the China Tobacco International Inc. The group, headed by its president, Chengkang Jiang, was received at the Government House. The executive was accompanied by Zhang Jinming, Liu Yiping and Mao Pinju.
Jiang, who is one of the main referents in the tobacco industry in China, is visiting Argentina for the first time since the country began to export tobacco to the Popular Republic of China. And it’s the only visit to a province in Argentina, following the meeting held with the Nation’s Agricultural Minister.
China is the main buyer and consumer of tobacco in the world. Salta has been working on the trade with that country for the past three years. For that reason there is a great expectation to increase the volume of exports to that country, which would imply a local reactivation.
Expectations also revolve around the possibility that the corporation invests in Salta in the assembly of a cigarette factory. In addition to tobacco, Salta also exports soybeans and timber to China.
In addition, the governor received a group of U.S. delegates and legislators who were visiting in Salta days ago.
The delegation was in Argentina for an experiences’ exchange started by the Fundación Universitaria Río de la Plata with the American Council of Young Political Leaders.
During the meeting, the visitors thanked the Governor for his reception and gave him a present from the institution they represent. Young professionals from Salta who participated in the program were also present.
These activities show that Urtubey is interested in foreign trade. And he will soon begin an international tour to consolidate his political image abroad.
