ONLINE EVENT: Developments in the US-China-Mexico Triangular Dynamic


As the Biden administration looks to reset relations between Washington and Mexico City, China’s approach to engagement with Mexico is also evolving. This includes a limited Chinese role in key government projects, such as the Tren Maya and the Dos Bocas refinery. More recently, China’s State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) purchased Mexico’s largest independent renewable energy company, Zuma Energía. And China Energy Engineering Group, a relative newcomer to the region, will build 154-megawatt wind project in Durango. In addition, according to Mexico’s foreign secretary, the two countries agreed in January to expand their strategic partnership. What are the prospects for sustained growth in Chinese engagement with Mexico? In what areas are Chinese investors likely to focus post-pandemic? What factors will shape the US-Mexico dynamic in the coming months? And what effect, if any, will Biden’s approach have on Chinese prospects?
