Mexico announced Monday a $14 billion investment plan in cooperation with the private sector to boost the pandemic-stricken economy through infrastructure projects.

The initial phase of the 297-billion-peso plan will start with 39 projects in the areas of communications, energy and the environment, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said.

“We’re going to sign an agreement with the private sector that will also mean investment, jobs and (greater) well-being,” the left-wing populist told reporters.

The plan is expected to create up to 190,000 jobs, according his government, many of them in the energy industry, a pillar of Lopez Obrador’s economic strategy.

Almost a third of the investment will be used to rehabilitate facilities of debt-laden state oil giant Pemex.

Carlos Salazar, president of the country’s influential Business Coordinating Council, said the plan sends a “message of unity and well-being,” while urging the government to give businesses “clear and stable rules.”

LONDON (Reuters) – British finance minister Rishi Sunak announced a new jobs support scheme on Thursday that would help firms employ people on shorter hours, but warned he could not save every business or job.

“The government will directly support the wages of people in work, giving businesses who face depressed demand the option of keeping employees in a job on shorter hours, rather than making them redundant,” Sunak told parliament.

Sunak said the scheme would run for six months, starting in November and be open to all small and medium sized enterprises. Larger firms would only be eligible if their turnover has fallen during the crisis.
