Following the feedback from participants of the previous Kenya Mining Forum, which gathered participants from the major nations of East Africa, the event will expand to cover the entire region. EAMEC will build on the success of the previous Kenya Mining Forum.
As commodity prices rise, the East Africa region presents a relatively under explored mining jurisdiction with vast potential.
Regional infrastructure development, especially key transport links between East African countries, also strengthen the position of the region to become a strategic hub due to its proximity to global markets.
On the Energy side, with the latest onshore Oil discoveries in Kenya and Uganda and offshore gas discoveries in Tanzania and Mozambique, the region has attracted significant foreign investment in developing the necessary infrastructure. At the same time, East Africa has made significant progress in increasing access to electricity to its people, fuelled by an investment surge in renewable energy projects.
