This report provides a perspective on Mexico’s trade policies relating to biotech and energy, topics that will be
among the topics discussed at the 2023 North American Leaders Summit (NALS), scheduled for Jan. 9 & 10, 2023.
The report examines the background of the Mexican government’s decree of Dec. 31, 2020, which sets 13 measures that have provoked strong reactions among farmers and industry NGOs who would like to see the decree withdrawn. Also in play in the discussions is the history of alleged regulatory abuses in the energy sector. In the
light of the green bias of the Biden administration, we foresee the corn and glyphosate disputes having more weight on the agenda than will oil and gas.
