Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (L) and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe walk during the welcoming ceremony at the Nacional Palace in Mexico City, on July 25, 2014Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe launched a five-country Latin American tour in Mexico on Friday, keen to strike energy deals on the heels of the Chinese president's visit to the resource-rich region. Abe will also travel to Trinidad and Tobago, Colombia, Chile and Brazil in a nine-day visit that comes two days after China's Xi Jinping wrapped up his own four-country tour, underlining Asia's growing interest in the region's fast-growing economies and vast natural resources. With Japan on the lookout for new power sources after the Fukushima disaster forced the shutdown of its nuclear reactors, energy will be high on the prime minister's agenda. Japan's top-selling newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun, reported Friday that Tokyo plans to provide financial and technical support to help Mexico develop its nascent shale gas sector, aiming to start importing Mexican gas in the mid-2020s.
