ABSTRACT: This article explores the role that a national mineral policy (NMP) can play to attract and maintain foreign direct investment while preserving national and international interests for sustainable development. Less-developed countries typically overlook or underestimate this step while seeking to harness mineral resources in their countries. Creation of an NMP and complementary changes to national mining investment laws can provide host nations increased autonomy and opportunities.
