Coffee, dairy and candies are products that can have great demand in China, Maria Claudia Lacouture, president of Colombia’s Export Promoting Office (Proexport), said in an interview with local radio station “La FM”.

Lacouture said Proexport is following colsely the consumption trends in China to find opportunities for a great variety of Colombian products.

“Last year, Colombia occupied position 47 as China’s trade partner. The potential is very big and we have identified the opportunities to reduce the commercial gap,” she said.
