Rene Kleijn on BNR radio about critical materials

The recent trade dispute between the U.S. and China has renewed the attention for the dependency of the U.S. and many other developed countries on the imports of critical materials. Recently this has led to an initiative by the U.S. government to team up with resource rich countries like Australia and Canada to support other countries to develop mining and refining capacity in order to diversify supply. CML researcher René Kleijn commented on this development on the Dutch BNR news radio.
