Mexico’s Energy Reform: What’s Next for Business?

Mexico moves into phase two of energy reform on February 1, taking on the task of promulgating the implementing legislation. The next two years in particular will be crucial for constructing competitive contract terms to attract international investors and for establishing effective regulatory institutions. Join The University of Texas at Austin’s Latin America and Caribbean Energy Program and the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and Energy and Environment Program for a discussion on the reform’s trajectory over the next several months. Panelists will discuss near-term commercial opportunities and challenges and will provide critical scenarios for energy companies to consider.
