Mexico To Vote On $1bn Corona Brewery In March, President Says

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has said that a public vote will be held on March 21-22 on whether to let US company Constellation Brands Inc open a brewery in northern Mexico.

Bone Of Contention

The more than $1 billion brewery in the border city of Mexicali would produce Corona and Modelo beers. It has been a bone of contention with local protest groups, which argue that it will cause water shortages in one of Mexico's driest regions.

Constellation Brands says that the plant is not a risk to water supplies.
