The Arab Mining & Minerals Conference & Exhibition is fast approaching and we are delighted to announce a distinguished speaker line up for this year’s event.
Co-hosted with the Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources of Jordan and welcoming leading government delegations from across the MENA world, Arab Mining is the only event of its kind showcasing the untapped, and under-explored mining potential of the region.
The mining industry has witnessed increased focus over the past few years as various governments diversify their economies away from black gold towards new industries.
As H.E Hala Zawati, Minister of Energy & Mineral Resources of Jordan declared: “The mining sector in Jordan is moving towards positive development and its contribution to GDP is significant, as Jordan is one of the largest producers and exporters of phosphate, potash, bromine, fertilisers and chemical acids in the world, and the only Arab country in potash production.”
Held in the Intercontinental Hotel in Amman from September 28-29 and broadcast online to a global audience, Arab Mining will welcome leading experts, thoughts leaders, government officials, mining companies and key stakeholders to Amman.
