The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, reported on Tuesday that his government is making progress in defining the new public company that will exploit lithium, since the local Congress approved the nationalization of the mineral for exclusive use by the public sector.

At the same time, he reported that there is communication between the governments of Mexico, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile for the creation of an association on lithium, in order to share knowledge, experiences and technologies that allow the exploration of the mineral.
He explained that it is necessary for these Latin American countries (important producers of a mineral considered “white gold” for its usefulness in modern energy technologies) to unite their experiences, especially with the case of Bolivia, where lithium is also nationalized, to advance together in the methods for extracting and using the material.

The Mexican president confirmed that there has been a communication with the president of Bolivia, Luis Arce because “he in turn has a relationship with the president of Argentina, who also has lithium and with the president of Chile, with the purpose of creating an association to help each other”.
López Obrador mentioned that, although in the case of Chile and Argentina, “they are private companies, the Government is interested in helping to exploit lithium with that particular mineral exploitation system.”
The Mexican president’s announcements came after the presidential initiative that reforms the Mining Law was approved in the Chamber of Deputies with 298 votes in favor of the ruling Morena and his allies, and 197 votes against, to give way to what López Obrador called the nationalization of lithium.
