In at least two important areas Mexico has seemingly managed to put the kibosh on China's efforts here. The first was the cancellation of its winning bid to build high spped rail here.The second was shutting down the Dragon Mart development near Cancún because of serious environmental damage.
But China has many tentacles. Now China is overwhelming Mexico's artesanal production. With Chinese junk, of course. Today's La Jornada quotes Socorro Oropeza the director of the Unión Nacional de Productores Artesanales Coyolxauhqui which claims 15000 members as saying "We [artesans] are being extinguished" by the cheap Chinese imports. Although Mexican artesans have won international prizes, most live on the edge of poverty, without land. Rodrigo Gutiérrex from the indigenous community of El Rosario in Jalisco said that artesans had stopped making ceramics because of Chinese "junk". Instead, almost all the artesans in his area collect plastic bottles for which they get 12 pesos a kilo. (That would be empty plastic bottles.)
As far as I know, there is no official national government support for Mexican craftsmen. Here in our area, there is a government store, but I don't know about anything else. I do know we still buy lovely pots and casseroles and dishes from Puebla and our area. But tourists are the big market. Tell any you see to BUY MEXICAN.
