Friday, August 17, 2018


The energy plans proposed by Mexican president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador have been several criticized by some sectors of the Mexican press.

But, to the surprise of many, Rick Perry, the US Energy Secretary, has confessed to admire López Obrador and his aim of building more refineries in order to reduce Mexico's energy dependence.

On a visit to Mexico, Perry made clear that he is aware that the new refineries could compete with those of the United States.
