The US after requesting the consultations in July and beginning them in August hopes "to maintain this positive momentum to resolve these concerns raised by US energy producers and to advance North American competitiveness," a spokesman for the office of the US Trade Representative said in an emailed response to questions from Bloomberg News.

The US and Canada in July lodged complaints against the nationalist energy policy of the government of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, arguing that it discriminates against their companies trying to operate in the Latin American country.
