On Wednesday May 27th, in Merida, Yucatán, Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation, Anton Inyutsu declared that one of the intentions of his government is to boost cooperation with Mexico’s energy sector and warned that sustainable development is a priority these days.
In the Sixth Meeting for Clean Energy Consortium (CEC), which was held in Merida and conformed by officials from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS), the Russian minister said that during this meeting the officials set a new meeting next November in Moscow with ministers of different countries.
The sixth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM6) is being hosted by the city of Merida, Yucatán: 27-28 May 2015.
Energy ministers and other high-level delegates from the 23 participating Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) governments have come together to discuss the opportunity presented by a second phase of the CEM (“CEM 2.0”), collaborations to scale-up CEM efforts, and other tangible steps to further clean energy cooperation.
With five years of work behind the CEM, CEM6 is a decision-making meeting to plan for how this global forum can be more effective and ambitious going forward. It is an opportunity to demonstrate how each of the member governments can implement the key policies and strategies to help meet national clean energy goals and how the CEM can contribute to a successful outcome for the climate change negotiations in Paris in December 2015.
In an Interview the Russian official said: “This is not the first time I’m in Mexico, nor the first that I come to Yucatan, but the it´s the first that I come for official matters,” said Russian Deputy, who said it is gratifying that a number of experts meets in Mérida to discuss energy issues.
“Soon 70 percent of the population will live in large cities, creating serious problems, so the development of sustainable urban energy these days is imperative; this situation also applies for Mexico.”
“Our relationship with Mexico in general is very well developed; in the last five years, trade and investment have increased by 3.5 percent; but certainly the energy was not among the main points of our interest in common during this time.” he stated.
The minister also said it is gratifying that the barriers have been removed and that many Russian companies are coming to Mexico to start businesses, since the objectives of the economies of both countries have many similarities, such as the energy sector, although he believes there is more that can be done to maintain a good level.
