MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Tuesday his administration will issue a call for U.S. and Canadian companies to participate in the country’s incipient lithium market.
Mexico does not yet have commercial lithium production, though close to a dozen foreign companies hold contracts to explore potential deposits.
