FDI and National Investment Key to the Future of Mining in Mexico

Mon, 10/22/2018 - 12:45

As a capital-intensive industry, the establishment of a healthy financial environment is key to maintaining the competitivity of a mining jurisdiction. While mining national investment rose to US$4.3 billion in 2017 from US$3.8 billion in 2016, the number remains a far cry from the US$8 billion the sector collected in 2012. In effect, authorities are focusing on strengthening FDI in mining to crank up the development of projects. But considering that only four mining companies are listed on the BMV in comparison to the 1,206 issuers on the TSX and TSXV, promoting the rise of national investment could be an area of opportunity.
