Mexico seeks to solve differences on energy with the US and Canada


Mexico seeks to solve differences on energy with the US and Canada

Mexico City, Feb 24 (Prensa Latina) Mexico seeks to smooth things over with the United States and Canada, the other two partners of the Free Trade Agreement (T-MEC) where their differences on energy issues are expressed.

The Secretary of Economy, Raquel Buenrostro, in a talk with journalists, estimated this year, after the important rapprochements achieved to lead Mexico towards a more dynamic development in the production of renewable energy, such as solar energy, the most marked differences will be smoothed out.

He revealed that negotiations between Mexico and its counterparts within the T-MEC are progressing and a proposed solution is already in place for three of the four areas where there are differences: use of diesel, fuel storage and permits in this sector.

However, he admitted that the parties have not yet reached a solution regarding the dispatch of electric energy, especially that shared in the border area with the United States.

Buenrostro was confident that the differences with its trading partners, the United States and Canada, which are still unhappy with some aspects of Mexico’s energy policy, can be overcome this year, although he did not define dates.

Mexico is destined to become one of the most important energy powers in the world because it has all the natural resources necessary to develop a multifaceted electricity industry, from thermal and hydroelectric to solar and wind power, including offshore.

The Secretary of Economy said that another of the issues within the T-MEC is that of transgenic corn, whose non-use in human food has already been decreed by the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

However, Buenrostro clarified that the doors are not closed, since it has other uses for which it would be useful.
