AS/COA will host Mexican Senator David Penchyna Grub, Congresswoman Rocio Abreu Artiñano, and Congressmen Juan Bueno Torio and Rubén Camarillo Ortega for a public panel in New York. All four are key members of Commissions involved in drafting the country’s energy reform; President Enrique Peña Nieto signed the legislation’s secondary regulations into law on August 11, ending a 75-year monopoly by state-run company Pemex. According to the Mexican government, GDP will increase by two points by 2025, 2.5 million new jobs will be created, and the cost of energy will decrease because of the reform. The legislators will discuss their views on the reform as well as the legislative process and implications for Mexico's and North America's future.
