The ECOWAS Commission, the Government of the Republic of Niger & AME Trade Ltd are delighted to invite you to take part in the 3rd ECOWAS Mining & Petroleum Forum and Exhibition, ECOMOF 2021, which will take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Conference Center, Niamey, Republic of Niger, from 14 – 16 September 2021.

The event has established itself as one of the largest mining events in West Africa that gathers the highest-ranking government delegations from the 15 ECOWAS West African Member States. After its two successful previous editions taking place in Ghana (2015) and Cote d’Ivoire (2018), ECOWAS is now a firm fixture in the global calendar of mining and petroleum events.

Niger’s economy is rapidly developing with a strong aim to diversify its mineral production, widen its investor base, improve infrastructures and position the country as an investor friendly jurisdiction for Mining and Petroleum. ECOWAS is the first international mining event in the country and a unique opportunity to develop new business deals.

ECOMOF 2021 will feature a variety of conference sessions, workshops and roundtables, with industry experts discussing issues encompassing the complete spectrum of the mining and petroleum sectors. The main theme of ECOMOF 2021 is “Developing a harmonised regional mining and petroleum legal and fiscal framework”.
