Mining Indaba Expands to Asia
NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ –
Africa’s largest mining investment event comes to Singapore to address growing
need among Asian economies for foreign investment in regional mining activity
After 18 years as Africa’s largest and most influential mining investment event, Investing in African Mining Indaba [http://www.miningindaba.com] will bring its successful business event platform to Asian soil with its new Investing in Asian Mining Indaba [http://www.asianminingindaba.com], which will be held 29-31 October 2012 at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore. For more information, please go to http://www.AsianMiningIndaba.com.
The annual Investing in African Mining Indaba is recognised as the mining industry’s premier forum for bringing investments into the African mining value chain. Throughout the 18 years of its history, Investing in African Mining Indaba has channeled billions of dollars in foreign investments into African mining and brought millions of dollars in tourism revenue for the local Cape Town economy. In the process, it has become the international standard for mining investment events.
The exponential increase in demand for natural resources from India and China is accelerating the need for more mining opportunities in the region. “Asia is ripe for a business conference platform as influential as that of African Mining Indaba. Unprecedented demand for iron ore, coal, uranium and other natural resources further augments the importance of stimulating more mining activity in the region. We intend to achieve the same goals as we did with Africa more than 18 years ago and that is to channel foreign investments into Asian mining to help meet these supply challenges,” explains Jonathan Moore, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Mining Indaba, LLC.
Investing in Asian Mining Indaba will be an annual professional conference dedicated to the capitalisation and development of mining interests in Asia. The event will attract the most influential stakeholders – financiers, investors, international mining houses, Asian government delegations, and other stakeholders – vested in the Asian mining value chain.
“Being the leader in its domain, the Mining Indaba global brand ensures an impressive gathering of investors, key mining companies, and government delegations from the continent. Asia has long been waiting for a business networking event that is of the caliber of African Mining Indaba to bring awareness and the necessary investments to fuel mining activity in the region,” says Kobus van der Wath, Founder and Group Managing Director of The Beijing Axis, and Keynote Presenter and Conference Advisor.
