Mexico aims to end foreign fuel imports in three years - next presidentMEXICO CITY
Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will seek to end the country's massive fuel imports, nearly all from the United States, during the first three years of his term while also boosting refining at home.
The landslide winner of last Sunday's election told reporters on Saturday morning before attending private meetings with members of his future cabinet that he will also prioritize growing crude oil production domestically, which has fallen sharply for years.
“We are going to immediately revive our oil activity, exploration and the drilling of wells so we have crude oil,” he said.
