Agroindustrial Blockchain in Mexico
Mexican NGO Canacintra, in collaboration with the China Association of Trade in Services, supports the Indigenous People’s Government of Mexico’s efforts to harness Blockchain technology to spur economic development for Mexico’s 35 million+ indigenous people.
At an event at the United Nations hosted by the Observatory on Digital Communication, representatives of the Indigenous People’s Government of Mexico and Canacintra, a Mexico-based NGO focusing on industrial development, announced a partnership to pursue agricultural and industrial development projects to benefit Mexico’s indigenous people, with Blockchain technology as a crucial component.
In an interview conducted by the Syndicated News Network, Cesar Arturo Silerio, President of Canacintra’s Agroindustrial Sector, said: “Our goal is to study the financial activities and opportunities that can be applied in Mexico using Blockchain and other financial technologies and solutions as well.” Mr. Silerio named the China Association of Trade in Services, a China-based NGO working to develop China’s service sector domestically and internationally, as a collaborator in this pursuit, adding: “We began an agricultural program in China last year and we are now celebrating our second harvest. We think it is important for Mexican populations to engage and improve their financial dynamics by working with other countries.”
The Collaboration Agreement between Canacintra and the Indigenous People’s Government of Mexico had a third signatory in Dr. Kalep González Blanco, Co-Founder and VP of Technology for Bankcoin.global, a cryptocurrency exchange company. In his interview, Mr. Silerio named Dr. Blanco as an important architect of the development projects: “[Dr. Blanco] has engineered and negotiated these projects by integrating them with the technologies and solutions he has designed; particularly in Blockchain.”
Armando Gómez and Luis Galvis Cuy, the newly appointed Honorary Ambassador of the Indigenous People of Mexico to the United Nations, represented Mexican indigenous governor, Hipólito Ariaga Pote, at the UN event, further organized by Dame Gloria Starr Kins of Society & Diplomatic Review. The event also featured an additional presentation and global initiative by Rehan Chaudhri.
