Lithium nationalisation unlikely to aid López Obrador

Report summary

The president of Mexico has proposed a modification to the mining code to nationalise the lithium industry. In this insight, we discuss the background, issue and potential impact on the lithium industry in Mexico. The key takeaways are: * It is unlikely that Mexico will be able to develop the know-how to exploit its lithium resources * The move will reinforce investor's concerns * The nationalisation can represent a blow to the Chinese strategy in Mexico
