Exploiting Natural Resources

Governments have targeted the exploitation of natural resources, such as minerals and petroleum, in their efforts to attract foreign investment and realise the potential of their hidden wealth. Secretariat assistance to these efforts has focused on advising these governments, on request, on appropriate legal, economic and fiscal terms for the exploitation of mineral resources, and on promotional efforts targeting international companies for investment. It has also helped countries settle maritime boundary questions and develop legal and regulatory frameworks in the fisheries sector.
