López Obrador aims to burst Mexico's megalopolis bubble
The upcoming Mexican government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador plans a nationwide redistribution of the head offices o ministries and other dependencies in order to help reduce the population bubble of the what is known as the "megalopolis" of Mexico City.
The capital and its surrounding urban areas houses some 25 million people.
The new plan is based on modern telecommunications. It would mean the relocation of some 20 offices, ranging from the Agriculture ministry in Sonora close to the US border in north-west Mexico to the headquarters of the state oil company Pemex in Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche, in the southeast.
