In brief: Mexico seeks agreement with Canada to upgrade hydroelectric plants

* The Mexican government led by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has said that it will seek an agreement with Canada for Canada’s state-owned company Hydro-Québec to upgrade Mexico's network of hydro-electric plants. The announcement by foreign minister Marcelo Ebrard followed a meeting which took place on the side-lines of the North American Leaders’ Summit which took place in the US involving US President Joe Biden, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President López Obrador. The possibility of Canada assisting Mexico in this area was floated in 2018 when the Mexican government first announced it would seek Canada’s help in modernising 60 hydroelectric projects.
