The 2022 Mexico-U.S. Economic Dialogue has promoted important agreement, including on zero-emission vehicles by 2030, investments to address wastewater issues on the Mexico-U.S. border, and other infrastructure issues. Meanwhile, Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has established a working group on transportation electrification to support the transition to electric vehicle use.
A good example is Grupo Bimbo, the largest bakery company in the world based in Mexico City, which announced the purchase of one thousand electric delivery vehicles. With the purchase, the company has more than 2300 carbon-free vehicles in the country, making it one of the companies with the largest number of electric vehicles.
In addition, both countries addressed long-standing wastewater issues that have been a major challenge for Tijuana, Baja California and San Diego, California for some time. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Mexican National Water Council (CONAGUA) agreed to sign a memorandum of understanding to provide $474 million for priority projects in the regions. The projects will also focus primarily on combating transboundary pollution that affects both cities. Both governments have committed to investing in border infrastructure and modernization projects. In doing so, both countries will focus on four pillars to improve and develop the region: Promoting an appropriate regional business environment Using advanced technologies, strengthening supply chains between the two countries, and encouraging legitimate trade and travel.
