China investment, in search of Mexican companies
"We are looking for very successful Mexican companies to help them standardize their business and grow their business model and bring them to China, use the resources of Chinese entrepreneurs to help them grow their business. In one year we will be talking about a large group of companies in Mexico and China that will make a good connection, we expect between 30 and 40 projects or deals that we can start," said Jun GE, ToJoy's global CEO, in an interview with El Heraldo de Mexico.
The company can directly exercise a capital injection in those projects it considers profitable, or also helps them find potential investors in China, as it has a network of 700,000 entrepreneurs or decision makers willing to exercise capital in these projects.
He said they are interested in the high-tech industry, e-commerce, any business based on the Internet and traditional sectors such as food, restaurant, arts and crafts, "also in the projects of large department store chains in Mexico, to expand their projects to China," he said.
He said that between China and Mexico economic relations have not been so close, but they see potential in consumer and agricultural goods.
"Mexico is the best place for ToJoy to set foot in Latin America".
