Environmental Industries Mexico Pre-mission Outreach Webinar

DFAIT hosted an Environmental Industry Opportunities in Mexico webinar on Wedensday, July 28th, 2010 at 10:30AM (Saskatchewan time) in partnership with SEIMA, STEP, WED, and ES. The webinar was presented by Rosalba Cruz, the Environmental Industries Trade Commissioner from Mexico City and two in-market consultants (Mexico City and Monterrey) who highlighted trade opportunities within their respective region as well as provided information on how to do business in Mexico.

Of particular interest was that the maximum wholesale price of electricity in Mexico is 18 cents per kilowatt hour (for street lighting). It was clear that wind energy is the most important form of energy at the moment in Mexico but that there are opportunities for solar as well.

This was an interesting webinar and I am sure the trade mission to Mexico in fall will be very useful in helping companies establish contacts.
