Investing in African Mining Indaba

miners

Africa’s vast mineral resources have the potential to have transformative impact on furthering growth and alleviating poverty in the region. To harness this potential, governments, industry and civil society must work together to ensure that mining plays a role in fostering inclusive growth and sustainable development.

The event:
African Mining Indaba brings together top leaders from the private sector, the international investment community and African governments to discuss challenges and opportunities of the African mining industry.

Participation:
The World Bank Group will host a series of sessions to highlight the importance of sustainable development issues such as governance, infrastructure and local content policies, among others, to promote the incorporation of these issues on the agenda of mining leaders.

In addition, high-level World Bank Group representatives will address delegates in sessions hosted by African governments and World Bank partners. For a full program of events, please visit: www.miningindaba.com
