GSI’s work in Mexico undertakes research and policy engagement on energy subsidies for electricity users, fuel consumers and fuel producers, as well as other policy mechanisms to promote renewable energy.
This country study and accompanying data sheet compiles publicly available information on G20 subsidies to the production and consumption of coal (including coal-fired power) in Mexico in 2016 and 2017.
Germany and Mexico released their voluntary peer reviews of fossil fuel subsidies under the G-20, during the twenty-third Conference of Parties (COP23) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
On 1 January 2008, the governments of Mexico and the United States removed all remaining cross-border tariffs on agricultural products between the two countries. The move, required under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), has been heavily criticized by agriculture interests on both sides of the border.
