In Cape Town, on the first day of Mining Indaba 2020, optimizing growth and investment in the digitalised mining economy has been at the center stage.
Out of the many subjects in debate, the common thread connecting them seems to revolve around questions such as how should mining companies position themselves to attract millennial investors and how can the mining sector be an engine for tackling the youth in order to further enhance development across Africa.
At the main stage, several speakers discussed about reconnecting the fundamentals of the mining industry with next generation values, how to increase the copper production to boost Africa’s stake in the vital global battery market and how to develop gold exploration and production.Countries such as Angola have set up pavilions, being highly represented in the mining industry through the presence of the public and private major players in the country, namely in the diamonds sector.
It has been a great first of four very promising days, in the presence of notorious speakers, governments and mining companies.
