Mexico needs to “value and properly cope with the huge manpower and money Chinese enterprises invested in the project bid, and carry out measures for further bilateral cooperation,” said a spokesperson for the National Development and Reform Commission, China’s top economic planning body, official news agency Xinhua reported.
