The first Africa Mining Summit will be held on 25th-26th November 2015 in Hilton Bomonti, Istanbul, Turkey, under the theme “Africa Towards Better Mining Practices”. The summit which is organized by GRV Global Limited in collaboration with The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in Turkey, will bring together African ministers in charge of mining as well as high profile CEOs and thought leaders in the industry, development partners, financial institutions, technology providers, experts from the private sector and national sectors, among others.
The key note speaker will be Mrs Zuma the chairperson of AUC. Africa is currently implementing two major initiatives namely The Africa Mining Vision (AMV) and the Africa Maritime Strategy (AIM) endorsed by the Heads of State and Government of the African Union in 2009 and 2014 respectively. To this end AUC will be launching a Decade of Seas and Oceans. Among the major areas on the AIM is the keen interest by Africans to explore how to benefit from the Ocean and Sea Resources including Deep Sea Mining.
In addition to a smorgasbord of VIP speakers, captains of industry, international experts and mining specialists, mining ministers from Africa, numerous mine owners, investors and operators meet to discuss ways to drive the way forward for the Mining industry and share insights into global market prospects and investment opportunities elsewhere in Africa. It is aimed at introducing African state representatives to practical solutions that tackle the challenges facing the mining sector. They are gathered in recognition of the urgency of the summit as Africa is at the stage of building its infrastructure at national and regional levels which is geared at achieving a sustainable future for Africa.
In addition to the speaking sessions, there will be prescheduled one-to-one meetings, facilitated networking zone and Gala Dinner.
