BMI View: Despite Argentina's significant natural resources, we forecast the country's underdevelopedmining sector will see little growth in the years ahead. Indeed, we forecast average annual growth of just0.5% to 2020. Ultimately, both subdued metals prices and a difficult operating environment will keepmining exploration and development activity subdued. Nevertheless, various copper and gold mines remainin development.We expect Argentina's mining sector will remain relatively small and underdeveloped compared to otherLatin American mining destinations, such as Chile and Peru, and that the industry will face headwinds inthe years ahead.

Economic and political headwinds are prominent, including elevated inflation, capitalcontrols, and local content requirements. These and other challenges have made the operating environmentdifficult for foreign mining firms and will limit their ability to significantly expand current operations andinvest in new resources. Furthermore, corruption and weak financial and legal systems are likely to furtherimpede inbound investment. With most miners consolidating operations and restricting capital expenditureto lower-risk jurisdictions that present more attractive economics, Argentina's mining sector will beparticularly affected.
