On behalf of the Ghana Chamber of Mines and Montgomery West Africa, we are pleased to announce and invite you to the Electra Mining West Africa 2014 conference taking place 3 – 5 March 2014 in Accra.
We are committed to this event as an opportunity to promote investment and knowledge sharing for the enrichment of West Africa’s mining sector. Further to this, we look forward to deepening partnerships for sustainable development of mineral and energy resources in the region.
West Africa is seen as a ‘mining hotspot’ and as one of the world’s fastest growing regions for gold production has experienced what has been referred to as the West African gold rush’. However it is also blessed with many other mineral resources offering great potential for global and local companies alike. We therefore need to create competitive and sustainable mining production projects to fuel growth, and meet demand by leveraging logistics and integrating infrastructure developments.
Recent developments and progress in the key mining and infrastructure projects have driven economic growth and ensured the long term sustainability of supporting industries demonstrating the potential of private sector participation in our country and we are keen to entice more investment in this sector.
The conference is designed for financiers, investors, mining professionals and West African government delegations vested in developing business interest, promoting new mining exploration opportunities and repositioning Ghana as an attractive gateway for investment in West Africa. The content will focus on the potential opportunities, lessons learned and the creation of new business partnerships. Overall, the conference will continue to facilitate and strengthen economic development of Ghana.
We look forward to welcoming you at Electra Mining West Africa 2014.
