Lithium exploitation is a strategic industry for Argentina

Julián Gadano, sociologist and former Undersecretary of Nuclear Energy, explained where the interest in this strategic resource for Argentina lies.

“We estimate that the lithium triangle will increase its production and value in the coming years. Argentina together with Bolivia are the countries with the largest reserves in the world. We have more lithium than Mexico and we have been doing things very well. The model Jujeño is to set up a public company with foreign capital,” he said.

Meanwhile, he acknowledged Bolivia did things badly with lithium by not being able to turn it into a national wealth, as it did with oil and gas. Argentina must guarantee stability for the great opportunity with lithium.

For this reason, he stressed that in the first place, it is necessary to know how to extract lithium sustainably, then attract capital and finally achieve greater integration. Argentina can multiply its production between five and ten times in 15 years.
