In 2018 there were a number of key elections in Latin America, including presidential races in Brazil, Mexico and Colombia. Argentina will have a presidential race in 2019, and there will be other elections in different countries. Most — if not all — of these elections could impact mining.
Given that political risk is one of the areas our mining practice focuses on (and was included in our October 2018 whitepaper on 7 key risks facing LatAm mining jurisdictions), on February 26 we organized a webinar entitled How LatAm’s Shifting Political Landscape will Impact Mining.
AMI Managing Director John Price was joined by Remi Piet — Senior Director of AMI’s Natural Resources and Infrastructure practice — to deliver a deep dive into political risks in several crucial mining jurisdictions, including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, The Guyana Shield, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru. For each country, the panelists covered the specific political issues of concern for miners and investors, then analyzed specific case studies relevant to the risks in each country.
Contact AMI to explore how we can help you further mitigate, manage or avoid risks in Latin American mining jurisdictions via strategic intelligence that can help you develop more effective strategies to handle these issues.
