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

Luis Lucero, a lawyer with extensive experience in project financing, corporate matters, and complex arbitrations and litigation, has been appointed as the new Secretary of Mining by the Government of Javier Milei. The announcement was made by the Ministry of Economy of the Nation after Flavia Royón left the position in February following objections from deputies in Salta to points of the Omnibus Law.

Lucero holds a Master of Arts degree with honors from University College London (UCL) and has 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. He 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.

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. Argentina has vast geological-mining potential which is currently underutilized. Last year, Argentina exported $4 billion in mining products which is projected to increase conservatively to $20 billion by 2030 with the development of copper projects. Moreover, it also has potential to become the third-largest lithium producer globally as the world shifts towards energy sources with low greenhouse emissions.
