JOHANNESBURG: FORMER United Kingdom Prime Minister, Tony Blair, will deliver the keynote presentation at this year’s Investing in Africa Mining Indaba, organizers said.
The event scheduled for February 9-12 in Cape Town, South Africa will feature an array of globally recognised economic visionaries, mining thought leaders and some of Africa’s largest deal-makers for the approximately 7 000 delegates from more than 110 countries.
“The 2015 Mining Indaba features a number of substantial investments we have made under our new ownership.
“These investments, made at a time when other events and the overall sector are contracting, reaffirms our belief that the long term outlook for Africa mining is excellent and our commitment for the Mining Indaba to remain the premier forum for uniting investors, mining companies and mining ministers,” explained Jonathan Moore, Managing Director, Mining Indaba.
The Mining Indaba unites investors and dealmakers from around the world with attractive mining opportunities throughout all of Africa. The conference places emphasis on the myriad investment opportunities in the sector from majors to juniors; brownfields to exploration.
As the world’s preferred platform for deal-making in African mining, delegates should expect to hear: a global perspective on the investment climate, status of current and emerging mining projects across Africa, and insights on the current mining scenarios in Africa’s most attractive mining jurisdictions.
