This panel and the symposium will be introduced by the Mexican Ambassador in the UK, Julian Ventura.

The panel aims to provide a general overview of the technological, social, political and economic implications of the Energy reform in Mexico and the great challenges and opportunities that the energy sector will face in the near future.
