Alibaba has marked another milestone in its globalization drive: the e-commerce giant signed this Wednesday a strategic partnership with Mexico to bring Mexican products and services, especially from small-and mid-sized enterprises, to its marketplaces.

According to the memorandum of understanding, Alibaba will create a special program specifically for Mexico to benefit from the company’s business-to-business trading platform Alibaba.com. In addition, Alibaba will share best practices in the operation of its logistics and payment platforms so that Mexican companies might bolster their cross-border e-commerce operations, as well as attract Chinese tourism to Mexico.

Alibaba said it would also provide training in the kinds of analytics that have driven consumer insight and product innovation in the Chinese market.
