This amendment to the law goes against global commitments to reduce the use of dirty energy. It will bring to the country a wave of demands at the national and international level for the impact of investments and commitments agreed with the free trade agreement.
Prior to the reform, the Chamber of the Transformation Industry raised the situation and risks for the country to legislators. There is concern in the productive sector about these decisions made by the government and legislators. The blackouts that have been registered in the country are a sign of what can happen in Mexico and the most affected are the people and the private incitement that has already had million-dollar losses in 29 states that suffered blackouts, said canacintra holder Helena Larsen Ayala.» One more blow to the restaurant sector» : rodrigo becerra, president of the canirac
