SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – Gov. Susana Martinez has made a quick trip to Colorado to meet with energy stakeholders from New Mexico and Mexico to discuss the region’s energy future.
Specifically, they’re looking at ways in which to better export energy from New Mexico into Chihuahua.
Tuesday’s meeting in Ignacio had area producers, federal government officials from Mexico, Chihuahua officials, and New Mexico officials in attendance.
It was held at a Southern Ute tribal facility.
The state is paying for Martinez’s trip.
Improving New Mexico’s energy infrastructure is a key element of the governor’s State Energy Policy and Implementation Plan.
New Mexico’s port at Santa Teresa continues to grow as a key corridor for trade between the U.S. and Mexico.
