  • This presentation, "Chile: World Leadership in Mining", was delivered at the Balochistan Mining Sector Technical Assistant Project Workshop on International Norms in Large-Scale Mining, September 27 –28, 2011, in Islamabad, Pakistan, by Jerónimo Carcelén.  Carcelén makes the case for Chile in terms of it having a very strong mining sector, in particular with respect to copper mining, and for the country being the "safest place to invest in Latin America". For example, he showcases the impact of mining in terms of economic growth and social development in Chile: mining investment has created more and ever-better jobs; transport infrastructure that has followed the industry’s development; mining has served as a bridgehead for the transfer and incorporation of new technologies; and, even more importantly, mining has a positive impact on the quality of life of communities located in mining areas; NB: document not provided by IESA.
