New Report: The PRC, Feudal Governors and No Accountability – LITHIUM MINING IN ARGENTINA’S NORTHWEST DISTRICT
This study examines how the government of Argentina has allowed the PRC to take over multiple strategic interests, including the vital lithium trade. China’s ability to create a deeply uneven playing field through corrupt practices and deception, with the complicity of the Argentine national and provincial governments, not only shields PRC companies from fair competition, but also from accountability, environmental oversight and community participation.
