AB - ABSTRACT: A substantial amount of world trade in copper takes place between Europe and Japan on the one hand and the developing countries, on the other. Even with an optimistic growth rate of 4 percent of world copper consumption through the year 2000, the risks of shortage of available reserves and resources are excluded. The main aspect of these problems is related to mobilization of these resources despite increases in capital costs and commercial risks. Amongst the countries cited for middle term growth in production are: Portugal (Neves Corvo), Panama (Cerro-Colorado), Colombia, the Philippines, Mexico, Chile and Peru, indicating a strong progression in Latin America.
