$7.1 billion a year in mining taxes, that’s big. On top of revenues by mining firms, job creation, community projects, etc.

The Philippines, which is supposed to be a mining powerhouse with an estimated mineral potential value of around US$ 1 trillion, is not able to optimize its mining potentials because of its generally unfriendly regulations and taxation policies.

The politics of envy and heavy ecologism is wrong.
