For decades, Mexico has been one of America's most reliable trading partners. Energy is a key component of that trade. In 2012, our neighbor to the south was the third-largest supplier of foreign crude oil to the US market. Meanwhile, US natural-gas exports to Mexico nearly doubled between 2010 and 2013. Today, the US-Mexico energy relationship is on the verge of its biggest change since 1938 when then-president Lazaro Cardenas nationalized the assets of foreign oil companies. Mexico's legislators are now re-writing their country's laws to allow and encourage foreign companies to once again directly participate in the development of that nation's vast oil and gas resources. This conference brings together some of the world's top experts on Mexico and energy to discuss what happens next, and the implications not only for the economy and energy trade in North America, but also the impacts on world markets.
