Nafta negotiators seek to enshrine Mexico's energy reforms

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

U.S., Canadian and Mexican negotiators are zeroing in on ways to enshrine Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's sweeping energy reforms into a modernized North American Free Trade Agreement, Mexico's chief negotiator said on Saturday.

The 2014 reforms wrung control of the country's oil and gas sector from state hands, opening it up to private investment, and incorporating them into the 23-year-old Nafta is seen as a way to help preserve them for the long term.
