Shifting regulatory climate

How it affects your business

As the boundaries of exploration expand, government policies and legislation are expanding too. Many countries are coming down hard on corruption, while issues such as the environment and rights of indigenous and local communities are seeing new regulations come into force, not to mention new taxes. The result: greater uncertainty within the sector and a decreased appetite for investment.
