The Ministry of Economy of the Nation announced that Luis Lucero, a lawyer specializing in the mining industry and natural resources law, will take over as the new Secretary of Mining. Lucero has extensive experience in project financing, corporate matters, and complex arbitrations and litigation. He replaces Flavia Royón, who was fired by Javier Milei following objections from deputies in Salta to points of the Omnibus Law.

Lucero graduated as a lawyer from the University of Buenos Aires and completed a Postgraduate Degree in Business Law from the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa. He has also taken various specialization courses and seminars, including those 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. Lucero holds a Master of Arts degree with honors from University College London (UCL).

The Mining Secretariat, headed by Luis 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. With vast geological-mining potential that is currently underutilized, Argentina could potentially increase its export revenue from $4 billion last year to $20 billion or more by 2030 with the development of copper projects. Additionally, Argentina has the potential to become one of the world’s top lithium producers as countries shift towards energy sources with low greenhouse emissions.
