Mexico has not an strategy regarding its economical and diplomatical relations with China (same with many other countries). It is a pitty. But I will not say that we Mexicans see China negatively, and I don't believe the Chinese see Mexico negatively.

According to this video is like a weird combination between a China town and a mall.

It was far more informative than the majority of the articles over the internet that only say that the Dragonmart in Cancun will be "like the one in Dubai".

China is actually competing with Mexico for jobs and market in other countries. They both want the USA market. To produce products for them. My Consuegros have a very large business here in Mexico. Three locations. They flew to Hing Kong and are now having their products produced in China, not Mexico. Everywhere I go to buy things here in Mexico I am finding products marked made in China on them. Even official looking Mexican pottery. The glassware and many things are made in China. I went to the Expogan and bought me an official looking fancy cowboy belt. I was happy to have my first cowboy belt made in Mexico. I actually looked at the tag about one month later and was disappointed to see it was made in China also.

John Stockwell, former CIA official (from his books, speeches...)

k"It is the function of the CIA to keep the world unstable, and to propagandize and teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any amount of money on arms.

Enemies are necessary for the wheels of the U.S. military machine to turn.

The major function of secrecy in Washington is to keep the U.S. people ... from knowing what the nation's leaders are doing.

At the end of the day is a dispute between Chinese entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs in Mexico which aren't even Mexican most of the time.

They both look for who they can exploit the most and pay the less they don't care if the workers are Chinese or Mexican, so, putting it the other way around should we care on whether or not something says it was made by a "Mexican" company? shouldn't we be more worried about the quality and price of the product?

You hit that one on the head. That is what is killing America as wages are being driven down. The poor people in the Maquilladoras here are guaranteed a life of poverty. It is because of greedy companies.
