The programme includes high-level business meetings, content-led discussions and networking receptions.  There is still time to register to join the exciting programme.

Chantelé Carrington, CEO of Invest Africa, says:Africa’s mining sector is at a crossroads. On one hand, the continent is witnessing a monumental surge in opportunity and demand for its abundant minerals and metals. On the other, however, global insecurity and oscillating commodity prices are steering investments away from perceived ‘riskier’ markets – including the continent’s key mining countries. Invest Africa is pleased to once again convene key government officials, investors and industry leaders for our Mining Series at this pivotal moment for the continent’s mining industry.”

We are pleased to leverage our mining practice expertise across global operations, focusing on risk, health, talent and retirement, to provide targeted management solutions to our clients. Our goal is to support the industry in navigating opportunities and overcoming obstacles, ensuring sustainability and continued relevance in the future.”
