Political

1. Increasing mining taxes: It has been seen that countries with mining resources are boosting mining taxes and other fees, and are also planning to renegotiate existing tax deals. Mining is a very capital intensive process. Glencore is thus highly dependent upon the political situation within the host countries. As returns are noticeable only in the long term, maintaining a long term relationship with the countries is very essential. Taxes and royalties demanded by host countries have to be accepted on most counts.
