Ministerial Symposium

Creating stronger public-private cooperation at the highest level

Strictly a private event

The highly prestigious invite-only annual engagement helps create stronger public-private cooperation and encourages the highest level of development planning. Gathering the most prominent mining CEOs and African mining Ministers for open and free-flowing discussions under the Chatham House rule. It's a unique opportunity for Chief Executives to sit down with host Ministers and openly discuss ongoing challenges and pressing concerns, with the aim being to find sustainable solutions to regional challenges, build trust between companies and host governments and help Ministers form effective and business-enabling mining policies.
It is the only event in Africa that engages industry leaders of this magnitude for open and free-flowing discussions.
Guests of the Symposium were then invited to enjoy an afternoon braai to continue their conversations.
