Weekly Summary

This week’s return to work after Easter saw the oil industry headline high-tech and finance: Industrial Nanotech put its energy saving technology to work for PEMEX, while a PEMEX contractor, Evya, was the second company reported to have been involved in fraudulent loans linked to Citigroup. The gaming industry saw Canada’s Law Vegas From Home conclude its second Mexican deal this spring, and CG Technology team up with Logrand casinos. The power market saw the first partial acquisition of a significant wind farm by a US buyer, while in Europe Carlos Slim took control of Telecom Austria, perhaps trying to balance expected shrinkage at home with growth in Europe.

After hours, writer Gabriel García Márquez died at 87, leaving behind the greatest body of work in Spanish in at least a century, and Benito Molina and Solange Muris commented on the growth of distinctive Mexican cuisine across the country.

Hasta la próxima!
