...A decision by Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to scrap a partly built $13 billion Mexico City airport has raised questions about the feasibility of his alternative plan and the consequences of the change.

Lopez Obrador aims to add two runways to the military air base at Santa Lucia, some 29 miles by road north of the current facility, Benito Juarez International Airport, then connect the two. He said it can be done for 70 billion pesos ($3.5 billion). Companies already contracted by the airport group may be able to transfer their contracts to Santa Lucia or reach new agreements.

The government also is studying plans to upgrade the Benito Juarez hub and Toluca International Airport, which is 41 miles away, for about 5 billion pesos ($265 million).

The airport's cancellation may require the government to put up extra funds to prepay bonds issued to finance it, outgoing President Enrique Pena Nieto said. The group building the Texcoco hub issued $6 billion in bonds and $1.5 billion in an investment trust, backed by the current airport passenger tax.

...During a lecture at the WindEurope Conference & Exhibition 2019 in Bilbao, Spain, Argentina's Undersecretary for Renewable Energy Sebastian Kind announced the government is preparing a new round of the RenovAr program, which will be focused in wind and solar projects. No details regarding the capacity to be contracted and tentative schedule are known at this moment.

The RenovAr program started in 2016 with three rounds (RenovaAr 1, 1.5 and 2), which resulted in contracts for almost 4.5 gigawatts (GW) of power. Round 3 was announced in early 2018, but the highly turbulent economic situation in the country forced the government to transform it into the "RenovAr Round 3 MiniRen," launched in November with only small renewable projects....

...Despite the uncertainty caused by political and social events in Mexico and the United States, industrialists in Nuevo Leon remain optimistic for 2019. Juan Ignacio Garza Herrera, president of Cámara de la Industria de la Transformación (CAINTRA) in Nuevo León, declared that the blockades in the railway tracks in the south of the country, as well as the problems of gasoline shortages have been factors that have affected the manufacturing industry.

However, he mentioned that the state's industry continues to grow at a similar rate to last year, creating at the beginning of this year 16,000 jobs, reflecting an important increase in confidence of industrial producers, traders and consumers.
