Mexico is looking at building a fertilizer plant along the Gulf of Mexico with Samsung, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Tuesday, September 27th.

The area in the town of Poza Rica, in the southern state of Veracruz, had previously been used in the petrochemical industry, Lopez Obrador told a regular news conference, and is a key location as it has a gas pipeline running to a port along the coast, in Tuxpan (also in the state of Veracruz).

Lopez Obrador met with Samsung chief Lee Jae-Yong earlier this month, and the two discussed construction, energy, and telecommunications projects, the president said in a tweet.
