What the current president wants is to be able to continue supplying Mexicans with the power they currently use, making Mexico independent from foreign sources, eliminate corruption in Mexico's energy sector while transitioning to cleaner sustainable sources, a task more apt for following administrations.

Apologies for not reading the white paper. (My Spanish jest ain't that good.) However, in a nutshell, is opening up more competition to Pemex part of the plan?

Foreigners will never be allowed to own Mexico's energy resources, and currently there's a bit of entanglement with foreign-registered businesses in the hydrocarbon sector that profit known Mexican scoundrels and scallywags (let's not forget Odebrecht). So after the dust settles we'll see where foreign capital can best profit, but I don't believe we'll ever see Exxon-Mobil gas stations, and I'm fine with that.
