LAST MINUTE: Buenrostro appoints undersecretaries of foreign trade and industry and commerce

The Secretary of Economy, Raquel Buenrostro, announced this Friday the appointments of the Undersecretaries of Foreign Trade, and of Industry and Commerce.

Alejandro Encinas Nájera arrives at the position vacated on Thursday by Luz María de la Mora, as head of foreign trade; while Luis Abel Romero López will be in charge of the Undersecretary of Industry and Commerce, instead of Héctor Guerrero.

“With this team, the dialogue within the Government of Mexico is strengthened, fundamental and indispensable for the coordinated elaboration of the responses to the T-MEC consultations, which favors a dialogue and a negotiation with legal arguments,” said the Ministry of Economy in a statement this Friday.

Mexico is in the midst of the consultation process requested by the United States and Canada on energy matters because they consider that foreign companies are being treated unfairly, privileging Pemex and CFE, failing to comply with the provisions of the T-MEC.

With these appointments, the agency added, a “better government coordination” is intended for the implementation of strategies that allow “to reduce inflation.”

Guaranteeing the investment of national and foreign companies, especially now that the relocation of supply chains and the strengthening of regional markets have modified the world economy, is the work and commitment of the SE, the statement said. “The objective is to promote economic activity at the service of Mexico,” he said.

Lastly, the dependency in charge of Raquel Buenrostro maintained that growth is sought, but “with a greater distribution of income, more formal jobs and with decent wages for the well-being of Mexicans.”
