Uncertainty Continues to Knock On the Door of the Ministry of Mines and Energy
Energy attorney Milton Montoya commented for an article in El Espectador about the controversy the Colombian Ministry of Mines and Energy is facing. Differences between Minister Irene Vélez and other officials have caused internal conflicts, leading to resignations within the department. Mr. Montoya considered that this could cause delays in the country's mining-energy projects.
"Ideally, there should be long-term positions, especially in those high ranks, so that strategic projects for a government can be executed. When a vice minister lasts five months, the chances of executing these projects are very low. In addition, the ability to know and understand the technical regulation of the mining-energy sector is lost," he said.
