Welcome Remarks:

Director, Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center 
Atlantic Council

Mexico's energy reforms will have major effects on power generation and electricity markets. Getting the electricity sector right is the key to increased manufacturing and productivity. Is the electricity sector's restructuring on track for infrastructure upgrades and lower long-term electricity tariffs? How does the new framework address the prospects for renewable energy? Will the reforms reach the ultimate goal of lowering power costs across the consumer spectrum?  

Join us for a conversation with top officials shaping the next phase of Mexico's electricity matrix. The discussion will also address the opportunities for increased US-Mexico cooperation in the region's energy integration. This call continues the Atlantic Council's ongoing work tracking Mexico's energy reform.
