Transforming potential into production by creating an attractive mining investment framework







Building on the success on the previous edition, the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum in Ethiopia in association with AME Trade Ltd, United Kingdom, will organize the second edition of the Ethiopian International Mining Conference & Exhibition (EIMC 2019) at the Hotel Sheraton, Addis Ababa. 

Ethiopia has huge potential in a diverse range of mineral resources (gold, gemstones, tantalum, industrial minerals, potash, lithium & rare earths). The government is planning to use the mining sector as a key pillar of Ethiopia’s Growth and Transformation Plan (GTPII) which aims to make Ethiopia a middle-income country by 2025.

It was recently announced that holders of large-scale mining licenses for precious minerals will benefit from a decrease of royalties and more incentives are expected to be unveiled before EIMC takes place.
