Minister of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining Aggrey Masi has hailed organisers of the 2019 Mining Indaba for their efforts in promoting the mining sector.
Delivering his keynote address at the 2019 Mining Indaba in Cape Town, South Africa last week, Masi commended the organisers for providing an enabling environment for countries involved in the mining sector to annually meet and present their issues.
He reiterated Malawi’s continued efforts towards making positive strides in the ministry sector to attract more foreign investors and to also help improve Malawi’s economy.
Said Masi: “Malawi Parliament just passed the Mines and Mining Bill into law in the 2018 parliamentary sitting to help in addressing most of the issues to do with the mining sector in Malawi to help in dealing with challenges by following modern mining management principles as dictated by global the mining trends.”
One of the organisers, Alex Grose, said the 2019 Mining Indaba changed its approach from being a platform for general discussions to a deal making and an investor focused event.
The four-day 2019 Mining Indaba, which took place from February 6 to 9, was opened by South Africa president Cyril Ramaphosa and attracted 6 000 delegates.
