Mexico’s National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) has faced myriad challenges and opportunities since its first open licensing rounds in 2015. What can an independent regulatory agency achieve in a country that just opened its petroleum industry to private investments? The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) hosted a discussion with experts on global resource transparency. CNH’s Juan Carlos Zepeda delivered a keynote address, and Carnegie’s Deborah Gordon moderated the discussion.
