Mexico’s manufacturing sector stands to benefit from a U.S. transition away from fossil fuels including through the creation of jobs for making electric vehicles, John Kerry, climate adviser to U.S. President Joe Biden, said on Oct. 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 traveled to Mexico to meet with his counterparts ahead of the upcoming U.N.’s COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, which neither Lopez Obrador nor his foreign minister is expected to attend.
