MEXICO CITY Nov 5 (Reuters) - Mexico's Cemex expects U.S. cement prices to increase between 5 percent and 6 percent on average in 2014, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

Mexican cement prices should rise between 3 percent to 5 percent this year, the spokesman said.

Separately, Chief Executive Fernando Gonzalez said the company planned to participate in between 5 and 7 electricity generation projects under Mexico's energy reform, which opened up the state-controlled sector this year to greater private investment.
