Country Stability Statement


Not country specific

National Codes 



Short form reports 


This Statement is intended to identify a window of certainty in which project planning can occur with reasonable confidence that there is no immediate economic or political risk that could result in a project's unforeseen closure. The Statement discusses:- external relations between the country of operation and its neighbours, and discusses the threat of war, among other issues; political and governance issues within the country of operation that may result in internal instability; the economic performance of the country, which may suggest internal or external sources of instability; and the social stability of the country, without which an operation may not have a social licence to operate. The Statement can be adapted to any stage in the life-cycle of a mineral project.
