Webinar: Upcoming Infrastructure Projects in MexicoDate: October 18, 2018Time: 2:00 pm
With Mexico’s President-Elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador to be sworn in on December 1, Mexico’s development and infrastructure planning is in transition. A wide range of infrastructure projects is expected to continue into the new Administration with continued private funding, while the President-Elect’s transition team works on planning for new priorities.
Our team at the U.S. Commercial Service in Mexico City is tracking expansion of freight transport networks, next steps with the New International Airport for Mexico City (total projected investment USD 15 billion), expansion of the Port of Veracruz (total projected investment of USD 10 billion), among other large projects. The new Administration is evolving plans for transportation and communications to boost the economy of several areas in Mexico. Some estimates suggest new public and private investment in Mexican infrastructure will be at least USD 7 billion by 2022.
- We are following Mexico’s potential USD 7 billion in new public and private infrastructure investment by 2022, including freight rail and public transportation, oil & gas industry, ports, and airports.
- The new López Obrador Administration may begin issuing a few international public tenders or requests for information as early as December 2018.
- The Trans-Isthmus Corridor may involve more than USD 2 billion public and private investment to improve connectivity from the Pacific Coast Port of Salina Cruz to the Gulf Port of Coatzacoalcos.
- The new Administration is exploring options for increased petroleum storage and refining as well as renewable energy projects.
