President announces bidding to start for 10 industrial parks

Mexico City, Mexico — On Thursday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that he is preparing to open bidding for 10 industrial parks that make up the Interoceanic Corridor of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.

Four of these, he said, will be used for the generation of clean energy, which will contribute to caring for the environment.

“In the Corredor del Istmo there will be 10 industrial parks. The call will be launched soon. There is a commitment, if the conditions are met, that four of the 10 parks will be used for the generation of electrical energy, wind energy. This is an agreement with the United States government to help address the problem of climate change,” he explained.

In a morning press conference, the president stressed that the parks will belong to the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and the purpose is for the United States or banks in that country, at very low interest rates, to provide financing.

He said that in the initial agreement, the parks will be built by Mexican and American companies.

He confirmed that on March 19, U.S. legislators, the U.S. Presidential Special Envoy for Climate, John Kerry, and the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Kenneth Salazar, will visit the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
