U.S. energy transition to create Mexico auto jobs, climate envoy Kerry says

Mexico’s manufacturing sector stands to benefit from a U.S. transition away from fossil fuels including the creation of jobs for building electric vehicles, John Kerry, climate adviser to U.S. President Joe Biden, said on Monday (October 18).

“Mexico’s industrial base, already deeply integrated with the rest of North America, absolutely stands to benefit from the energy transition,” Kerry said alongside Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in Mexico’s Chiapas state, near the southern border with Guatemala.

Kerry travelled to Mexico to meet with his counterparts ahead of the upcoming United Nations’ COP26 conference.

President Lopez Obrador talked about his Sowing Life tree plantation program and said the initiative could be a way to deal with migration coming in from Central America. 

The head of state added that Mexico will be President Biden’s ally in the fight against climate change.
