Panel discussion at at the La Jolla Energy Conference 2019 with Nelson Narciso, Non-Resident Fellow, Institute of the Americas & former Director at Brazil’s National Petroleum Agency (ANP) Timothy Stephure, Director, Latin America Gas & Power, IHS Markit, and Lisa Viscidi, Director, Energy, Climate Change & Extractive Industries Program, Inter-American Dialogue
Mexico’s new energy model has been controversial in the Mexican regime, but widely held around the world. Since 2013, Mexico has witnessed a deep and rapid opening of its energy sector, as well as several attempts to reform PEMEX and the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). However, Mexico’s energy reform is still incomplete and faces new challenges under a new Andrés Manuel López Obrador administration.
At an event co-hosted by the Inter-American Dialogue and the Institute of the Americas, panelists discussed how the new Congress will approach key issues affecting energy within the context of Latin America’s evolving role in US trade and foreign policy.
