It seems Mexico is returning early from the holidays. News flow picked up considerably this week as Televisa, Mexichem and the Alfa group all announced significant acquisitions, positioning themselves for the inevitable arguments about what the reforms of the energy and telecommunications sectors will mean in practice. PEMEX announced a corporate reorganisation to address the same challenges. Meanwhile, Taiwan’s Acer, Sweden’s Blue Water, the UK’s Vectura Group and Plexus Corp. of the US all announced entries to the Mexican market, or expansions of their existing operations. La Piñata added a new contributor in Delta Economics, which will be providing readers with their incisive views on the direction of trade and its implications in periodic DeltaCasts.
After Hours stuck with music this week, celebrating Los Tigres del Norte’s getting a Hollywood Walk of Fame star. Meanwhile, Hot Tamales put away the flash tequila to try its upstart cousin, mezcal.
Hasta la próxima!
