Chinese dream brings more opportunities for trade with Latin America

MEXICO CITY/BEIJING - Though geologically distant from each other, Brazilian businessman Luis Neto and Chinese technology geek Wang Tao have a shared dream: promoting Chinese-made Da-Jiang Innovations (DJI) civilian drones, one of high-tech products emerging in recent years.

Two years ago, Neto, 24, shot a video with a DJI drone of a protest in Sao Paulo, which later aired on a local television channel and got more than 1,000 emails asking where to buy the drone.

Detecting a potential business opportunity, Neto decided to become a DJI sales agent. His business has rapidly expanded, reaping hundreds of thousands of U.S. dollars, despite Brazil's bleak economy.

"I hope I can sell DJI drones across the region," Neto said.

On the other side of the planet, Wang, the DJI's founder, has developed his startup into a multinational company with 3,000 employees and clients from more than 100 countries within nine years.

Accounting for 70 percent of the global consumer drone market share, Wang added new brilliance to the brand "Made in China". As a leading figure in civilian drone research and development, Wang hoped "Made in China" can also mean high quality and good taste.

"That is my dream," he said.

The links between Wang and Neto could be an episode as Chinese President Xi Jinping has pointed out that the Chinese dream, an effort by the Chinese people to pursue a happy life, is closely linked with the dreams of peoples in other countries.
