Recent primary election results for the presidency of Argentina were definitely unfavorable for the incumbent president, Mauricio Macri.
Investing News recently interviewed Remi Piet—director of AMI’s Natural Resources and Infrastructure practice—for an analysis of these primary election results, who is most likely to win the Argentine presidency and the possible impacts this could have on mining investment in the country. Remi also discussed the recent Guatemalan presidential election, in which Alejandro Giammattei defeated former First Lady Sandra Torres. Remi parsed the results and focused on why Giammattei’s election could be a welcome development for mining companies.
In addition, Remi addressed the developing conflicts in Peru against mining operations in the provinces of Arequipa and Moquegua.
