What export policy for New Caledonia’s nickel?

Under a self-referral to the Economic and Social Council, SMSP was heard by members of the Mining, Metallurgical & Energy Committee and that of Economic Development, Taxation & Budget. Given the unfavorable economic situation of the nickel industry, the discussions within the “Signatories Committee” on the country’ strategic industrial plan, and also the validation of the anti-trust law by the High Court on constitutional matters, SMSP’s written contribution focused on the fair access to mining resources, the complementarity of available production channels, and on the need to implement a strategy favoring the control and optimization of the resource for the country’s benefit.
