U.S. companies are interested in investing in the country's energy sector, mainly in projects being developed in the South-Southeast. This was stated by the national vice-president of the Mexican Chamber of the Construction Industry (CMIC), Marcos Orduña Alcocer, who considered that the conditions are in place to promote and consolidate foreign investment in Mexico.

During a panel discussion on the country's economic situation, Mr. Orduña Alcocer made it clear that the Mexican government's three major investment projects -Dos Bocas, the Mayan Train, and the Trans-isthmus Corridor- will be decisive for the development of the states that make up the country's South-Southeast region.

He commented that in recent days they held a meeting with members of the commercial attaché's office of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico. "The reason is that American companies want to come and invest in our country because the conditions are right, especially in the South-Southeast. There is everything for them to come, mainly in the energy area, which is where they are most interested".

In this sense, he recalled that last year the trade balance between Mexico and the United States registered transactions for 604 billion dollars. "Data from the U.S. embassy says that 600 billion dollars were moved. They sold us 246 billion and we sold 354 billion. We are talking about almost 110 billion dollars in our favor," he said.
