Mexico’s Energy Reform
What’s Next for Business?
Houston, TX, February 7, 2014
Mexico moved 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. 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 presented a discussion on the reform’s trajectory over the next several months. Panelists discussed near-term commercial opportunities and challenges and provided critical scenarios for energy companies to consider. Here is a look at our keynote speaker and panelists: Mexico Energy Reform: What’s Next for Business? Agenda
