The Netherlands to invest in Mexico’s clean energy sector
As a result of the new reforms recently approved in Mexico and the opening of the energy sector, several European countries have decided to invest in different industries.
One such country is the Netherlands, which, according to Carel Richter, Head of the Department of International Business at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Netherlands, is ready to collaborate with Mexico through direct investment, training and technology.
In recent years, the relationship between the two countries has grown significantly, and now the Netherlands seeks to be a key partner of Mexico in the energy sector, not only in gas and oil, but mostly in sustainable and clean energy, such as wind power, an industry in which the European country is one of the most advanced in the world.
Holland has invested $50.8 billion USD in Mexico between 1999 and 2015, a figure expected to increase once the relationship between the two nations is strengthened.
“Mexico has positively differentiated from other nations in the region, implementing reforms and opening to foreign markets, offering a considerable amount of attractive investment opportunities”, said Carel Richter.
According to the official, Mexico has a well planned strategy, as it takes the example and experience of other countries to avoid making the same mistakes, and thus ensures doing business and investments that benefit both, the investors and the people of Mexico.
The official announcement of cooperation between Mexico and Netherlands was meant to take place during the month of May, but President Enrique Peña Nieto had to cancel his state visit to Netherlands.
