The new Secretary of Energy was also Secretary of Tourism under President Carlos Salinas de Gortari and later, general coordinator of the Mexican Commission for Aid to Refugees of the Ministry of Interior.He was also head of the government delegation to the peace talks in Chiapas and Mexico's Ambassador to Cuba.
"Leading SENER, you have a man who has not politically discussed anything, has behaved like a connoisseur- a firm believer of the rule of law", said David Penchyna, president of the Senate Energy Committee. "Distinguished by his bargaining, dialogue, openness ... It is an appointment that will help honest discussion with Mexican society, with the potential for public policies that build the country. "
We now require an honest rule with concrete proposals by Coldwell, whose existing resources must translate into tangible gains for Mexicans.
