RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Mexico plans to renegotiate contracts in the electricity sector with Spain’s Iberdrola and around 10 other firms, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said on Wednesday, March 3rd, heralding fresh tensions between his government and the private sector.
“Basically it’s Iberdrola and about 10 more,” López Obrador told a regular government news conference. “We’re going to look for agreements in the sense that we want to keep having contracts, but we need to get up to date with the new reality.”
Lopez Obrador was speaking a day after Mexico’s Congress . . .
