Mexico´s Housing Revival
February 25th 2015
at the HQ of the
Council on Foreign Relations

In February 2013, President Enrique Peña Nieto (EPN) unveiled the National Housing Policy (Politica Nacional de Vivienda – PNV) directed at promoting a new paradigm of urban development and curbing the recent real estate and housing debacle. Since then, concrete measures have been taken to implement the objectives set out by the PNV: to achieve coherence and consistency among all public and private stakeholders; to shift towards a model of “sustainable and intelligent” urban development, to reduce the housing gap and provide decent housing for all.
So as to move these changes forward EPN has requested all governmentloans and grants to be reoriented towards well-planned and orderly urban growth as well as high-density vertical development within urban areas. The newly-created Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Urban Development (SEDATU) will provide and oversee among all stakeholders for greater and stronger housing credits andsubsidies, the creation of new mortgage programs and instruments, increasedterritorial reserves and housing developments certificates, among other advances.
Under the auspices of SEDATU, policy makers, bankers and experts will join to discuss the impact of the PNV on the sector and on Mexico´s growth and social cohesion. Heads of the national government organizations as well as housing, construction and infrastructure stakeholders will present and assess the revival of Mexico´s housing and urban development pinpointing investment opportunities in the light of the country´s demographics and socio-economic figures.

UPCOMING

Mexico’s Energy Future
March 17th, 2016
at the HQ of the
Council on Foreign Relations

In August 2014, President Enrique Peña Nieto passed the energy reform package, which will lead to the most important change in the history of Mexico’s energy landscape.
The Congress approved nine new laws and amendments to existing laws, establishing a new legal framework for Mexico’s energy industry.
The reform breaks up a 75-year old state monopoly over energy, allowing private and international companies to invest in oil, gas, and electricity generation. Among the world’s top oil producers, Mexico has seen its production hobble over the past decade because of a lack of investment and expertise. The reform will allow foreign companies to bring in capital and technology, which would boost energy production and contribute one percentage point of GDP by 2018, according to some estimates. On August 13, the Ministry of Energy (SENER) announced the results of Round Zero, where Pemex was granted 83% of Mexico’s 2P reserves (Proven and Probable Reserves) and 21% of Mexico’s prospective resources. Despite the seemingly never-ending drop in oil prices worldwide, Mexico’s first-ever licensing round is still a go.
Panel discussions will explore the future of Mexico’s energy sector and its role on a global scale. Steps taken toward the implementation of the reform, the outcome of Rounds Zero and One and prospects for Round Two will be evaluated. Opportunities and challenges will be highlighted in the fields of oil & gas exploration, refining, and logistics, with special attention to deep water and shale. The forum will explore project finance instruments and the role of PPPs.
