Nana Akufo-Addo, Ghana President, will officially speak at the 2019 Investing in African Mining Indaba, which will be taking over the Cape Town International Convention Centre, South Africa, from 4 to 7 February 2019.
The African Mining Indaba, which celebrates 25 years, has become one of the major mining centres on the African continent.
Delegates will be provided with an opportunity to hear about the future of Mining in Ghana and the intention of President Akufo-Addo to ensure that the government is fully committed to promoting the expansion of local and international value chains that would benefit small producers and entrepreneurs from Ghana and the rest of the African continent.
In 2018, the African Mining Indaba played a key role as a deal-making forum, with a 15% increase in overall attendance and 47% more mining executives.
New elements of the event such as the Junior Mining Showcase and re-developed Sustainable Development day created platforms designed to explore unique aspects of the mining industry, which was well-received by attending delegates.
“We are quickly becoming more than just a conference – we are here to support your businesses. As a team we also have a long-term, laser sharp focus in driving investment into African mining and actively contributing to Africa’s sustainable economic growth, to help your business thrive,” says Harry Chapman, Director of Content.
