MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's Economy Ministry has invited U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai's team to hold third round of energy consultations in the coming days in Mexico City, according to an economy ministry statement published Thursday.


Mexico's Economy Minister Raquel Buenrostro met on Thursday with U.S. Trade Representative Tai to work on solutions for the energy and environmental consultations requested for Mexico, according to the statement.

Buenrostro proposed establishing working groups, which would meet during December and early January to discuss the different aspects of the energy consultations.

The progress would then be presented at the North American Leaders' Summit, set to be held in Mexico during January 9-10 next year.

Mexican authorities stressed that they were seeking to resolve the dispute in the consultation phase and avoid the need to resort to arbitration panels, the statement said.

Mexico's foreign ministry is also preparing a meeting with other high-level authorities and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, the statement added.
