After dealing with economic setbacks in the midst of reform attempts, Argentine president Mauricio Macri will face a significant challenge in his bid for reelection this fall. A recent poll showed Macri trailing Alberto Fernández, whose running mate is former president (2007-2015) Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

Investing News recently interviewed Remi Piet—director of AMI’s Natural Resources and Infrastructure practice—about the possible impacts on mining in Argentina that could result from the election of either of these frontrunner candidates. The discussion highlights the strong support for mining within the country, as well as local challenges that could affect projects.

In addition, Remi also discusses the underappreciated mining potential of Bolivia and a recent ruling affecting a key mining project in Ecuador.
