Finally Fluor, the largest engineering company in the US, will be in the restricted bidding for the development of the Dos Bocas refinery, one of AMLO's pet projects. On Thursday, inside Rocío Nahle's circle, there were indications of a request by Secretary of the Exterior Marcelo Ebrard so that the Dallas-based company would not be left aside.
Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House senior advisor, insisted during the dinner he had with Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Televisa executive Bernardo Gómez, and Ebrard, that at least one US company should be invited to the Dos Bocas project. The most daring insist that he insisted several times on Fluor. An evident collusion considering the strict laws of the US.
The Trump administration promotion of American businesses has set its eyes on Mexico. In Yucatán, a few months ago, when AMLO had a meeting with Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, he requested that for the construction of the Maya Train US firms should be considered, instead of Chinese ones.
Fluor seems to be a company in which Kushner has interest. The Washington Post revealed in February of last year that Trump's son-in-law is interested in Saudi Arabia achieving nuclear capacity by building two reactors in the desert. Fluor is among the favored firms for such a project.
The inclusion of Fluor in the development of Dos Bocas can be seen as a gesture in the midst of the deadline given to Mexico by the White House for solving the crisis at the Southern Border. It is also an attempt to get Kushner's approval, who, as Ebrard was in Washington, spent his time in meetings in other continents, far from the action.
