Nigeria Mining Week partners have shown "great commitment" as event returns to Abuja in October
By: Nigeria Mining Week
She adds: "With the government's commitment to creating a conducive business environment, the event will showcase the diverse investment prospects available in Nigeria. With a rich history of mineral resources, Nigeria stands poised to harness its mineral wealth for sustainable economic growth and development."
Proudly hosted by the Ministry of Solid Minerals and organised by the Miners Association of Nigeria (MAN) in collaboration with PwC Nigeria and the VUKA Group, Nigeria Mining Week returns to Abuja's International Conference Center in October for its eighth edition with the theme of Capitalizing on Nigeria's Critical Mineral Resources for its Economic Growth.
Shaping the Nigerian mining landscape
According to the President of MAN, Dele Ayanleke, Nigeria Mining Week has consistently made valuable contributions to the extractive sector of this West African powerhouse: "Since the commencement of this annual event in 2016, our content development partner, PwC Nigeria, and the event planners, the Vuka Group, have not disappointed in bringing current issues to the table for robust critique and pragmatic communiques which are being considered for gradual implementation by the regulatory bodies."
He continues: "the communiques emanating from the various editions of this annual event have constituted a major ingredient to policy decisions changing the sectoral narratives and gradually shaping the Nigerian mining landscape."
Spectacular return in 2022
The event made a spectacular, record-breaking and welcome return as a live edition onsite in Abuja in November last year, with the attendance of the former Nigerian President, H.E. Muhammadu Buhari and the former Vice-President, H.E. Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, as definite highlights.
The mining community was clearly pleased to be able to get together, network and do deals in person again. Last year's edition hosted 1500+ visitors onsite, more than 330 delegates, speakers and VIPs and was supported by more than 40 sponsors and exhibitors.
"Nigeria Mining Week has always and still has the objective to do more than merely host an expo and conference,"
