United States and Mexico Seal Semiconductor Production Alliance

Since coming to power in 2021, U.S. President Joe Biden has set an important agenda and allocated a large amount of resources to implement electric mobility and promote the use of clean energy. The U.S. president’s plan seems to go beyond U.S. borders, and he is forging alliances to implement these new technologies.

In this regard, representatives of the White House traveled to Mexico to hold meetings with Mexican authorities, including President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, where guidelines were established and investments approved.

This was specifically for the 2nd Annual U.S.-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue Meeting. At the meeting, U.S. officials invited Mexican leaders to join Biden’s plan to manufacture semiconductor chips and promote electromobility.

More than USD 51 billion will be invested in the project to develop supplies of the chips, an important electric mobility technology for the efficient conduction of electricity that has been in short supply in recent years.

Plans and Environmental Commitment

Officials from both nations expressed their willingness to work hard to implement projects within the framework of electric mobility. “We have a shared commitment. by 2030, 50% of vehicles sold will be electric,” said U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. “We can be leaders if we produce together,” he said.

Likewise, the Mexican government shared its work around the Sonora Plan, where the entire supply chain is being worked on, from the extraction of lithium to the arrival of zero-emission vehicles.

In this regard, Mexico’s Secretary of International Relations, Marcelo Ebrard pointed out that the main thing is the invitation to Mexico to become part of the effort for North America to produce semiconductors and promote electromobility.

“Mexico takes very generously the offers made to us by the United States, we have an invitation that is received perhaps once in a lifetime. So we are going to take it. Thank you very much for thinking of Mexico, it is a historic opportunity,” he added.

Mexico’s Secretary of Economy, Tatiana Clouthier, explained that they are working with private initiative, the academic sector and governments to draw up a road map to solve problems related to the promotion of sustainable mobility.

It should be noted that Mexico is home to major automakers such as General Motors, Ford and Volkswagen, which supply the North American market and require these components to produce increasingly innovative vehicles.
