By entering the “most important energy forum in the world,” Mexico is the newest, and first Latin American, country to join the IEA, its government announced.
Mexico deposited its signature on the treaty for the International Energy Agency in Belgium during the weekend, becoming the first member in Latin America.
“With this final step, Mexico enters the most important energy forum in the world,” Mexican Energy Secretary Joaquín Coldwell said in a statement. “We will take our part in setting the world’s energy policies, receive experienced advisory in best international practices, and participate in emergency response exercises.”
