The new Morales administration is opposed to the possibility of implementing a mining moratorium and promises to accelerate the review of license applications which are awaiting approval.
Arguing that the need to create jobs and economic development in areas outside of the capital, Morales administration officials announced that they will not implement a moratorium on exploration and mining in the country.

Although the Morales administration has already rejected the possibility of a mining moratorium, the Central American Institute for Fiscal Studies (Icefi) and the Danish development organization IBIS still insist on calling a halt until a study of the sector is carried out.
