Argentina's government, through its newly appointed Secretary of Mines, Mr. Daniel Meilán, has confirmed the various fiscal policy changes implemented by the new government in office that now provide incentives to attract mining investors to develop the vast natural resources of Argentina that are virtually untouched within the shared 4,500 kilometer border with Chile.
The Secretary's message at the PDAC conference in Toronto was given predominantly to an audience of believers in the potential of Argentina's geology and who have kept the faith year after year.
Mr. Meilán was accompanied by various provincial authorities from the provinces of San Juan, Catamarca, Jujuy, La Rioja and others who while having political differences came together united and supportive of advancing mining and of the fiscal policy changes recently enacted by the federal government.
Mr. Meilán's vision and drive is to bring all the provinces under a united National/Provincial Mining Code to ensure the development of natural resources as the main driver and contributor of the Argentine economy and put an end to the current destabilizing diversity of rules imposed by each province which is, at best, confusing to investors. The message was clear from Secretary Meilán who confirmed that the "Best is Yet to Come".
As a friend and corporate citizen of Argentina for 24 consecutive years, this PDAC was very special in that it brought government leaders from all political perspectives together and in support of the new government's policies announced during the first 70 days of being in office which should be conducive to produce the three pronged objective of:
A Win for Communities
A Win for Government
A Win for Investors
The audience attending the Argentine presentation at PDAC was large with many familiar Argentine faces and it is hoped that all the governmental authorities present become keen ambassadors of Secretary Meilán's message of "The Best is Yet to Come" so that it becomes a reality.
This year the attendance at PDAC was lower than usual (about 15,000 attendees) although the atmosphere at the convention did not fail to inject the usual excitement, new ideas and hope for an economic turn around with financings on the horizon.
