Even from jail, 'El Chapo' looms large in Mexican home state

Even from jail, 'El Chapo' looms large in Mexican home stateCuliacán (Mexico) (AFP) – He has lost weight in his New York jail cell, and some of his larger-than-life aura, but Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman still looms large over Mexico’s Sinaloa, where he launched his narcotics empire.

Trade deal with U.S. expected to spur Mexican e-commerceMexico’s fledgling e-commerce market could get a lift from a trade agreement with the Trump administration that doubles the value of goods that can be imported tax-free from the United States, online businesses and experts said.
