La industria minera tiene un impacto significativo en los países donde se desarrolla. En esta exposición se muestra, con datos concretos, cómo esta actividad trabaja en todos los aspectos necesarios para lograr el desarrollo sostenible tanto a nivel local y regional como nacional a partir del desarrollo de la industria. Se muestra no sólo el impacto económico generado, sino aquellos impactos que se logran a través de políticas, acciones y programas, que en su conjunto dan como resultado la creación de una cadena de valor que trasciende el mero aspecto recaudatorio, que muchas veces es el único mencionado.
