(USTDA)  Highlights Infrastructure and Sector Development Plans for U.S. Companies

WASHINGTON, DC USTDA releases Major Infrastructure Projects in Mexico resource guide, providing valuable insight for U.S. industry on priority infrastructure projects throughout Mexico. The resource guide was announced by Vice President Joseph Biden and U.S. Trade and Development Agency Director Leocadia I. Zak during the CG/LA North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C.

Over the next four years, the Government of Mexico plans to invest more than $600 billion to modernize its energy, transport, telecommunications, water and environment sectors. In order to support the country's ambitious reform efforts and position U.S. firms for success implementing critical infrastructure projects, USTDA developed the resource guide to provide U.S. industry with details on Mexico's infrastructure sectors and specific infrastructure development plans through 2018. The resource guide includes over 25 project profiles, complete with real-time market intelligence, detailed project plans, contact details for key decision makers, procurement timelines, and planned financing mechanisms.

"USTDA has been working closely with our partners in Mexico, who are planning to invest hundreds of billions of dollars over the next four years to modernize the country's infrastructure," said Director Zak. "We believe this guide will serve as a key resource for U.S. firms interested in supporting priority projects associated with Mexico's new National Infrastructure Program."

Project profiles in the guide are separated by sector, and include energy, transport, telecommunications, and water and environment. The full guide can be viewed and downloaded on USTDA's website at: www.ustda.gov/program/regions/lac/mexicoresourceguide.asp.
