In this regard, Francisco Cervantes, president of the CCE, confirmed that there was a dialogue with the ambassador and the minister counselor on the issues of climate change, the energy sector and investments related to strengthening the Mexico, United States, Canada Treaty (T-MEC).

“There is a very dynamic relationship (between the US and Mexico), especially in recent months, at the Summit of the Americas the agenda of the Mexican delegation was very solid, we were in many meetings with the ambassador, we were talking about climate change, It was a very, very good agenda,” said Cervantes.

The meeting of the National Council of the Business Coordinating Council, instead of one hour, went to two hours due to the interest there is, the relationship with the United States, in the T-MEC and mainly highlighting the investments, said the president of the Mexican business community.

He was asked, where will the investments be made?
