The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development, today issued the following statement on launching an energy consultation with Mexico under the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) with respect to Mexico’s policies in its energy sector.
“Canada has consistently raised its concerns regarding Mexico’s change in energy policy. We agree with the United States that these policies are inconsistent with Mexico’s CUSMA obligations.”
“Therefore, Canada is taking action by launching our own consultations under CUSMA to address these concerns, while supporting the US in their challenge.”
“We will always stand up for Canada’s energy sector which has taken a leadership role in the transition to clean energy in Mexico and supports thousands of workers across North America. We look forward to working with both Mexico and the United States to resolve this issue.”
