Mexico, Ukraine Forge Business Alliances

14. January 2013 by Dasha 0 Comments

At first glance, Mexico and Ukraine seem to have nothing in common. They’re over 6,000 miles apart, only a handful of Mexicans live in Ukraine, and bilateral trade is limited. However, as the Kyiv Post reports, the two nations are taking steps to increase trade and form business alliances. 

In 2009, a Mexican ambassador first traveled to Kiev to identify business opportunities. The ambassadors came up with a few potential markets, including beer and tourism. Here’s what became of their efforts.   

Mexican Beer in Ukraine

As reported, distributors brought Corona to Ukraine in 2009, and it was a huge hit! The brew is now Ukraine’s most popular imported beer. However, Corona isn’t the only Mexican beer Ukrainians can get their hands on. Corona’s distributor, Carlsberg Ukraine, also sells Negra Modelo. If you’re ever craving a Mexican beer in Kiev, head over to the Tequila House to get your fill of Corona and Negra Modelo, as well as margaritas and Mexican fare.


Mexico – Ukraine Tourism

Ambassadors also resolved to increase tourism between the two nations, and in 2010 around 50 Mexican tour operators began advertising in Ukraine. A few of Mexico’s top tourist attractions include Acapulco, Cozumel, Cancun, and the ruins of Chichen Itza and Teotihuacan.

Though flights between Mexico and Ukraine run at least 20 hours, Mexico’s recent Electronic Authorization System allows Ukrainians to enter Mexico without obtaining a visa. Ukrainian travelers can instead obtain authorization online.

The change, which allows Mexico to compete with nations closer to Ukraine, appears to have paid off. A recent report found that in the first nine months of 2011, Mexico saw a 120.7 percent increase in travelers benefiting from the new electronic system. Mexicans must still secure a visa to enter Ukraine.


Ukrainian Women and Mexican Men

International dating is gaining popularity in Mexico, and many Mexican men are captivated by the charm and beauty of Ukrainian women. Some join sites like HRB to chat and flirt with ladies from Kiev, Odessa, and other Ukrainian cities. A shared tradition of strong family values and emphasis on country and culture help make these intercultural relationships work.
