Mining On Top: Africa Summit 2018 moves to Geneva, Home to Global Banks and Investors.

Geneva, Switzerland – January, 2017: The 5th edition of Mining On Top: Africa Summit (MOTA) will be taking place from 3-4 July in Geneva, Switzerland aiming yet again to connect African governments to European mining companies and investors to drive further investment into the continent. Building on the success of the previous four editions, the theme for this year is ‘Europe as a Partner for African Mining.

The event will be focussing on highlighting the geological potential and political stability of Africa so that strategic and financial partners can foresee future inter-continental collaborations in the continent’s mining industry. MOTA 2017 attracted +200 targetted and highly influential participants from over 20 countries including investment hotspots: Guinea, Ghana, Madagascar and Senegal.

Currently, the European Union is aiming to secure Africa as an engine for its industrial development and value creation and simultaneously African governments are emphasising on diversification and undertaking mining reforms and adapting policies to increase production and transparency in the sector. Thus, MOTA 2018, occurring at the hub for global commodities trade and home to leading broking houses and financial institutions is the ideal strategic mining platform uniting global and regional mining houses, financial institutions, technology specialists, industry experts, senior government officials and European and African stakeholders under one roof.

The established event is proven to be successful in promoting responsible and sustainable mining and is the only conference focussed on improving European-African relations to launch new mining projects in Africa and progress existing ones into the next stages of development.

Some of the key topics under discussion will include:

  • Outlook for African Commodities (Analysis of European demand for and African supply of raw materials)
  • Forecasting commodity supply and demand and the knock-on effect on mining operations
  • Spotlight on Africa’s Geological Hotspots
  • Digital technology optimising productivity and enhancing mining operations
  • Creating a strategy to demonstrate long-term shareholder value
  • Developing a framework for natural resources management, policy formulation and implementation
