The words of the rulers came after the speech of the president of the Mining Chamber of Mexico (Camimex), Jaime Gutiérrez Núñez, who made a “respectful” call to governments to respect the rule of law.

The president of the Association of Mines, Metallurgists and Geologists of Mexico (AIMMGM) pointed out that technicians and professionals linked to mining have made an effort to position the industry as a strategic ally of the federal government for economic reactivation.
