Mining companies in Angola plan joint promotion abroad

19 January 2015

Angolan mining sector companies plan together to take part this year in major international mining fairs, with the launch this month of the International Promotion Platform for the Angolan Mining Sector (Angola Mining PPI), the Angolan press reported.

This opportunity, in the hands of national private company Bumbar Mining, involves setting up a pavilion to promote the brands in the Angolan mining sector at Indaba Mining (South Africa), PDAC (Canada), Mine Africa (Canada and the UK) and Africa Down Under (Australia).

“This initiative stems from the need to promote the Angolan mining sector at an international level, with a strategy of cost sharing by multiple entities,” said Sebastião Panzo, Director-General of bumbar Mining.

The first fair, in which the company expects to install a 9 square-metre pavilion, is Mining Indaba, which is due to take place from 9 to 12 February, in Cape Town.

The event brings together over 7,000 participants, representing over 110 countries, 45 African and non-African government delegations (industry regulators and ministers) and over 2,300 companies and institutions linked to the global mining sector value chain. (macauhub/AO)
