Introduction

MEXICO'S ENERGY POLICY IS STILL EVOLVING, BUT WE HAVE NOT HAD TO REVERSE OURSELVES ON ANY ELEMENT OF THE POLICY. WE ARE MOVING STEADILY TOWARD A COMPLETE AND SOPHISTICATED POLICY THAT ANTICIPATES MOST CHANGES AND INCORPORATES THE NECESSARY FLEXIBILITY TO ADJUST QUICKLY TO — WHATEVER CHANGES MIGHT BE NEEDED.

EACH COUNTRY'S ENERGY POLICY WILL NECESSARILY BE UNIQUE, SUBJECT TO — ITS OWN HISTORY, ITS ECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS, ITS OWN TECHNOLOGICAL - SOPHISTICATION, AND KNOWN RESOURCE BASE FOR EACH FORM OF ENERGY. ALTHOUGH THE POLICY FOR EACH COUNTRY MIGHT BE UNIQUE, THERE ARE VARIOUS ELEMENTS OF POLICY THAT MAY CONTAIN ASPECTS COMMON TO SEVERAL COUNTRIES, AND SO PRECEDENT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES CAN BE USEFUL. THERE NOW EXISTS ABUNDANT PRECEDENT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES CAN BE USEFUL. THERE NOW EXISTS ABUNDANT EVIDENCE AS TO WHAT NOT TO DO.

WE WELCOME A SERIES OF TALKS WITH U.S. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS THAT WILL COMMENCE SOON. WE WANT THESE TALKS TO BE SUCCESSFUL, AND ON OUR PART WE WILL TRY TO MAKE THEM SUCCESSFUL. WE VERY MUCH WANT TO SEE A STRONG AND ECONOMICALLY SUCCESSFUL UNITED STATES. IN FACT, WE ARE CERTAIN THAT A STRONG AND ECONOMICALLY SUCCESSFUL MEXICO WILL HELP THE UNITED STATES, NOT BE A DETRIMENT TO IT. THE POSSIBILITY OF MEXICAN NATURAL GAS EXPORTS WILL SURELY BE ON THE AGENDA OF THE MEETINGS; AND WE MAINTAIN AN OPEN MIND AND ARE WILLING TO LISTEN TO ALL REASONABLE PROPOSALS.
