Mexico to Accept Direct Imports of Quinoa from Bolivia

LA PAZ – Mexico will allow direct imports of quinoa from Bolivia, the Aztec nation’s foreign secretary said on Friday after meeting with Bolivian President Evo Morales.

Mexicans will be able to “increasingly appreciate this Bolivian product,” Luis Videgaray said during a joint press conference with Morales, referring to the fact that until now, Mexico has obtained the Andean nation’s quinoa through intermediaries.

The Mexican official said that his country represents a “grand” universe of more than 125 million potential consumers of the nutrient-rich “golden grain.”

Bolivia is one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of quinoa and has been working to open new markets for the grain in Russia and China.

Morales applauded the decision by Mexican authorities and said that Bolivia will strive to expand its exports of milk to Mexico.

The two men also touched on other matters, such as an expansion of a scholarship program for Bolivian medical students attending Mexican universities.

Bolivia needs more medical specialists to staff higher-level hospitals, Morales said.
