Banco Interacciones (Interacciones), a subsidiary of Grupo Financiero Interacciones and Envision Energy (Envision), the Shanghai-based world leader in smart wind power and renewable energy, have signed a memorandum of understanding ("MOU") to jointly carry out exploration, structuring and the pursuit and/ or installation of renewable energy projects in Mexico.

Under the MOU, Envision and Interacciones will cooperate and work together to explore early stage and developed wind-power projects in Mexico. Envision brings its cutting edge technologies and expertise in developing and operating renewable energy projects, while Interacciones will use its experience and strong local presence in Mexico's business sector to identify potential projects and investment opportunities, as well as provide financial structuring and coordinate institutional and government relations.

This agreement is undertaken within the context of strengthening commercial and diplomatic relations between China and Mexico, which have been recently made a priority by the current Presidents of both nations.

Carlos Hank Gonzlez, CEO of Grupo Financiero Interacciones, pointed out that, "this strategic alliance with Envision will allow both companies to take advantage of the many opportunities offered in Mexico under the new business climate that the recently passed energy reforms will generate in this sector to further foster the Mexican Government's ambitious National Infrastructure Plan. We are excited by the prospect of combining Envision's leadership in smart wind power and renewable energy with Interacciones' specialization in infrastructure projects."

Felix Xuyu Zhang, Executive Director of Envision Energy and CEO of Envision Energy (North America), pointed out that, "Latin America and Mexico in particular, are positioned as the premier emerging market for renewable energy, specifically wind power generation. This strategic cooperation will allow us to provide state-of-the-art technology together with structured financing to our clients."
