MEXICO CITY, Sept 29 (Reuters) - The ports division of Denmark's A.P. Moller-Maersk is looking to participate in the tender to expand the Port of Veracruz in southeastern Mexico, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

Mexico's government said earlier in September that it wanted to attract 23 billion pesos ($1.35 billion) of investment in four or five new terminals in the new Port of Veracruz during President Enrique Pena Nieto's administration.
