L'accordo sulla riduzione della produzione di petrolio raggiunto dall'Organizzazione dei paesi esportatori di petrolio (Opec) avrà un effetto positivo per il Messico. Lo ha sottolineato il ministro delle Finanze del paese, Jose Antonio Meade Kuribrena. “Noi seguiamo la situazione, si tratta di un accordo importante per il Messico. Non so i dettagli, ma è una buona notizia per le finanze della compagnia petrolifera Pemex e per tutto il paese", ha detto il ministro ai giornalisti. Il Messico non è un membro dell'Opec, ma è il decimo produttore di petrolio al mondo.

The deal on cutting oil production reached by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) member states in Vienna on Wednesday will have a positive effect for Mexico, country’s Finance Minister Jose Antonio Meade Kuribrena said. "We will follow the situation, it is an important deal for Mexico that will have resonance. I do not know its details but that is good news for finances of the Pemex oil company and the whole country," the minister told journalists. Earlier in the day, OPEC members reached an agreement to cut production by 1.2 million barrels a day starting from January, thus limiting cartel-wide output to 32.5 million barrels per day, in an effort to stabilize the oil market. Oil market turbulence caused oil prices to plunge from $115 per barrel in June 2014 to less than $30 per barrel in January 2016, causing hardship for oil exporters and placing a number of global oil producers at risk of bankruptcy. Since then, prices have slightly increased and are currently at $45-50 per barrel. Mexico is not an OPEC member but it is the tenth biggest oil producer in the world.
