Industry executives and governing bodies need to highlight the seriousness faced by African resource-exporting countries in isolating international capital. Actions regarded as resource nationalism have varied widely, from tax hikes through demand for greater state equity and indigenous participation, to renegotiation of stability clauses in mining contracts. Mining can boost economies and present countries with a better future. However, the negative effects can be felt far into the future if stakeholders don’t agree on how to maximise shared value. This conference will explore the role that key stakeholders should play in order to maximise shared value.
