Lithium: Government seeks ‘friendly exit’ with German company ACI Systems

The Deputy Minister of Electricity and Alternative Energy, Humberto Leigue, said on Tuesday that a “friendly exit” will be sought to dissolve the partnership formed by the government of the Movement al Socialism (MAS) with the German company ACI Systems, to exploit the lithium of the Salar de Uyuni, in Potosí. It is to ask them that the deposits they made in the formation of the joint venture be recovered by Germany and Bolivia. The joint venture project had a directory in which Bolivia only by name had the majority; in fact, it had a veto from the minority companies that placed the resources.
