FG to Showcase Investment Opportunities at Nigeria Mining Week
Matching the right investors with the right project will top agenda at the new Finance and Investment Day during the upcoming Nigeria Mining Week taking place in Abuja from 26-28 October.
“As a booming market in its infancy, the upward trajectory of the Nigerian mining sector is a strong incentive for investors to profit from the golden opportunity of newcomers,” says event manager Sabrina Tab.
“The Finance and Investment Day will provide a full day of dedicated conference sessions featuring industry experts along with financiers, allowing investors to tap into this strategic territory through project showcases and case studies, while miners looking for funding will be able to learn more about strategies and models best suited to their financial needs,” she explains.
This year’s marks the fifth edition of the event which garnered increasing interest over the year.
The expansion of the event and the expectation of welcoming in excess of last year’s 1159 attendees from 17 countries, have prompted organiser, Clarion Events, to move to a larger venue, the International Conference Centre (ICC), so it can accommodate the expected the over sixty exhibitors as well as several country pavilions.
The event is organised in partnership with the Miners Association of Nigeria (MAN), PwC Nigeria and the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development.
Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Arch. Olamilekan Adegbite, has stated that the ministry intends to increase its support for Nigeria Mining Week.
“It is my wish to upgrade Nigeria Mining Week to an international event like the Investing in African Mining Indaba, PDAC of Canada and Mines and Money. This what we are working on,” he said.
