London, England (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
Government Ministers from Angola, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Lesotho, Mali, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia are meeting in London this month as part of an initiative to create shared value through mining.
In partnership with the Commonwealth Business Council and UK Trade & Investment, SNL Metals & Mining annual event Mining on Top: Africa- London Summit, is bringing together key government officials, senior mining representatives, investors and service providers to create a greater understanding and improve the social and economic outcomes of African mining.
This meeting will be the centerpiece of the Mining on Top: Africa – London Summit to be held in London June 23-26. Discussions will focus on Africa’s requirement of almost US$100 billion each year to improve the continent's infrastructure. Only half of this amount is currently being spent on roads, railways and port facilities, and the African Development Bank has appealed for investors. The ADF recently announced that it hopes to raise US$3 billion in a new infrastructure fund, Africa50.
The program for the event can be found at http://miningontop.com/africa/agenda. The conference is being held at One Great George Street, Westminster, London.
Mining on Top, formerly part of IntierraRMG prior to its acquisition by SNL Metals & Mining, provides region-specific mining conferences and mining education seminars including conferences centered on mining, exploration and development; high level summits focused on the strategic mining development of emerging markets and insightful educational courses on the mining industry and finance.
