By: Nigeria Mining Week
ABUJA, Nigeria - March 24, 2021 - PRLog -- The UK Department of International Trade (UK DIT) has announced their partnership with the organisers of Nigeria Mining Week, for the launch of an exciting digital trade show, the Alternative Mining Equipment Trade Show, aiming to drive collaboration between the UK and Nigeria for the development of mining activities.

Despite the recent challenges to the industry globally, the interest in Nigeria's mining future has not receded. The small-scale mining sector in particular, is ripe with opportunities for development.

"The UK has many years of experience in the mining sector and over time, has developed an array of solutions and technologies that can change how mining is done," says Oluwaseyi Adepoju, Trade Advisor at the UK DIT. "The goal is to join forces to create a safer prosperous mining sector in Nigeria," he adds.

High-level speakers at opening
Supported by Nigeria's Ministry of Mines and Steel Development, the Miners Association of Nigeria and PwC Nigeria, he online trade show will include a high-level opening ceremony and showcase more than ten companies.

Registration and participation in the UK DIT Alternative Mining Equipment Trade Show is free of charge and open to anyone looking to attend the trade show and reach out to the exhibitors.
