Luis Lucero appointed as the new Secretary of Mining by the Javier Milei Government

Luis Lucero has been appointed as the new Secretary of Mining by the Government of Javier Milei, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Economy. He is a lawyer with extensive experience in project financing, corporate matters, and complex arbitrations and litigation. Lucero has completed a Postgraduate Degree in Business Law from Universidad Argentina de la Empresa and has taken various specialization courses and seminars related to government policy and corporate strategy in mining at the University of Dundee, negotiation at Harvard Law School, and foundations of organizational sciences at Columbia Business School and the University of Cambridge.

The Mining Secretariat, headed by Lucero, plays a crucial role in proposing, executing, and controlling the country’s mining policy. The Secretariat also works on interacting with provinces, municipalities, investors, and companies as well as coordinating international cooperation efforts. Argentina has vast geological-mining potential which is currently underutilized. Last year, Argentina exported $4 billion in mining products, and it is projected that by 2030 this number could increase conservatively to $20 billion with the development of copper projects. Furthermore, Argentina has the potential to become the third-largest lithium producer globally as the world shifts towards energy sources with low greenhouse emissions.
