Ebrard responds to the US and Canada: Mexico is already preparing to defend energy and T-MEC issues

Mexico City (appropriate). The Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs is already preparing the team of officials who will accompany representatives of the Ministry of Economy (SE), who will lead the consultation process on Mexico’s energy policy requested by the governments of Mexico yesterday. United States and Canada.

“We will move forward,” Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon commented on his Twitter account, before meeting those who will be part of the delegation that will defend Mexico’s interests in the consultations.

However, Ebrard’s agenda this Thursday appears to focus more on his race to run for president in 2024: He is scheduled to visit Acapulco, Guerrero, where he will attend two events and hold a press conference.

Yesterday, the governments of the United States – primarily – and Canada separately notified of their intent to take the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador into a consultation process to analyze the energy reforms that have been touted in recent months, as they considered this to be a possible violation of the Mexico-US-Canada Treaty (T -MEC).

Mexico’s official defense will be led by a Special Envoy, headed by Tatiana Clouther, who will seek to convince her counterparts that the reforms do not breach T-MEC or harm US and Canadian companies, as the two countries’ governments suggest.
