Coffee and Conversation with Duncan Wood and Jeremy Martin
Just two days before Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is sworn in as Mexico’s next president, join us for a conversation on how his administration will navigate the most critical issues facing the country’s energy sector. Duncan Wood, Director of the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and Jeremy Martin, Vice President, Energy & Sustainability at the Institute of the Americas will unravel the rumors, share highlights and offer their insights while engaging with the audience.
The long political transition in Mexico has provided for a great deal of ruminating about the AMLO government. Recently, much attention has focused on the Mexico City airport referendum and decision. Meanwhile, myriad proposals and ideas have circulated with regards to the energy sector. Reinvigorating Pemex. Recovering oil production. Reducing energy imports, particularly from the United States. Building new refineries. Revising the country’s energy regulatory frameworks. Energy and the new USMCA free trade accord. The list seems to grow as his inauguration inches closer. Indeed, it appears quite evident the strategic lens through which the AMLO government views the energy sector and how crucial it will be for his sexenio.
