In a new report, “The Lithium Triangle: To Be or Not to Be Successful,” the Wilson Center’s Latin America Program examines the region’s lithium industry, its role in regional economic development, and its importance to the global energy transition.

 This flagship report, the second in a series from the Lithium Triangle Initiative, examines China’s increasing presence in Argentina’s lithium industry and its investment strategies; Chile’s potential for expanding lithium production and the institutional, political, environmental, and social considerations; and the historical factors that have prevented Bolivia from developing its vast lithium resources.

Please join us on Thursday, May 2, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (EST), for a virtual conversation with the report’s authors and the editor of our flagship report on Latin America’s lithium sector. This event is part of our Latin America Energy Transition Initiative.
