MEXICO CITY, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Electric carmaker Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) is considering setting up an assembly plant near a new Mexico City airport, which would serve as an export hub for the firm, Mexican presidential spokesman Jesus Ramirez said.
"Tesla will invest there ... in an assembly plant, to export directly by air," Ramirez told the newspaper.
Separately, a Mexican official told Reuters that Tesla had been shown the site, but had given no indication of its plans.
Ramirez told El Heraldo de Mexico that Tesla was aiming to invest in the T-MexPark, a major industrial park being built close to the Felipe Angeles airport.

REUTERS/Liz TasaMEXICO CITY/LIMA, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Peru declared Mexico's ambassador to Lima "persona non grata" and ordered him to leave the country on Tuesday, Peru's foreign minister announced, in the latest escalation of tensions between the two nations after Peru ousted Pedro Castillo as president.
The abrupt order, a severe measure in the world of diplomacy, gives Mexico's envoy to the South American country just 72 hours to exit.
Mexico's foreign minister took to Twitter on Tuesday night to blast Monroy's expulsion, deriding it as "unjustified and reprehensible."
Speaking at a news conference earlier in the day, Mexican Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, said the government was negotiating safe passage for the family of Castillo, who were inside Mexico's Embassy in Lima.
Ana Cecilia Gervasi, Peru's foreign minister, announced later on Tuesday that safe passage for Castillo's wife and the couple's two children had been formally approved.
MEXICO CITY, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Climate change will accelerate humanitarian crises around the world in 2023, adding to the issues created by armed conflict and economic downturns, according to a study by the NGO International Rescue Committee (IRC).
Climate change is among the key factors accelerating humanitarian emergencies, the IRC noted, despite the fact that the 20 countries on its emergency watchlist - like Haiti and Afghanistan - contribute just 2% to global CO2 emissions.
"2022 has shown that the role of climate change in accelerating the global humanitarian crisis is undeniable," the report noted.
The IRC also flagged to need to more "proactively invest in climate change prevention and mitigation."
In addition, the gap between humanitarian needs and its financing has grown to a global deficit of $27 billion as of November 2022.

PHILADELPHIA — Mehmet Oz opposes federal mandatory minimum prison sentences and thinks President Joe Biden made a “rational move” by announcing a broad pardon for certain marijuana users, Oz, the Republican Senate nominee in Pennsylvania, said Thursday in an exclusive interview with NBC News.
Oz said he supports Biden’s decision to clear the records of ex-convicts who were in federal prison solely on charges of simple marijuana possession, a rare area of agreement with Biden and Fetterman.
“I really think judges should be empowered to make the difficult decisions, and they generally do it well,” Oz said.
On abortion, Oz reiterated that he opposes the procedure except in cases of rape, incest or risk to the life of the woman.
“Being released from prison, especially if you’ve been sentenced to life in prison, it’s a whole different game,” he said.
During the interview, Fetterman occasionally stuttered and had trouble finding words.
