Seminar Description

This seminar discusses the contrasting behaviours of the Mining sector (sample of 6 countries: Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Guatemala, Honduras) and the Oil/Gas sector (sample of 6 countries: Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela) in response to the metals and oil price boom cycle of 2003 - 2011, in terms of production response, investment and State participation in sector revenues.

This empirical analysis tells us about the implications of different Resource Governance structures, for State participation and sector investment responses to the recent favourable price cycle (2004 - 2011).  Policy implications are derived to improve Governance structures in Latin American countries based on this analysis, particularly in a short to medium term scenario of continued high international prices for commodities.
