Mexico City, Jun 7 (EFE) .- The Mexican Ministry of Economy, Tatiana Clouthier, promoted the priority works of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for the southeast of the country, such as the Mayan Train and the Trans-isthmic Corridor, in his virtual tour of this Monday in Canada.
Clouthier commented at a conference that he presented investment opportunities in his meetings with Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade; Francois-Phillipe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, and business leaders.
“We present the projects and the vision that is had towards the south-southeast of the country and we comment on how logistics parts come that may be interesting for them, use the space that is there to transport merchandise,” said the secretary.
The Mexican official made the virtual visit with Canada, Mexico’s fifth commercial partner, within the framework of the new trade agreement between the two and the United States, the T-MEC.
The meeting took place after the historic midterm elections on June 6, where the Mexican ruling party lost the qualified majority in Congress, but swept the governorships.
Clouthier acknowledged that “the issue of the elections was one with which all the meetings began,” but that Minister Ng “congratulated Mexico for the process.”
“(We started) by telling them that yesterday we had a very important election for Mexico and that they had endorsed two things that we believe are important, one is to show the diversity that our country has and the plurality of it,” he said.
The election gained international relevance, particularly among Mexico’s trading partners, because President López Obrador required maintaining control of the lower house to carry out constitutional reforms, such as one to restrict private participation in the energy sector.
Clouthier acknowledged that Canada addressed the energy issue and that next week there will be a meeting between authorities from both countries.
