An investment forum which is expected to revamp the nation’s mining sector is set to hold in Abuja in November.
The event, iPAD Nigeria Mining Forum is regarded as a long overdue strategic investment platform by mining sector expert.
The forum will feature key role players in the Nigerian mining space to discuss the way forward, the event director Nicole Smith said.
“The new government in place has a strong desire to exploit Nigeria’s vastly under exploited natural resources, which includes about 44 varieties of minerals in over 500 locations.
“iPAD Nigeria will initiate and fast-track a new mineral sector reform roadmap that encourages and provides innovative business ventures and supports partnership opportunities. It will be a vital meeting place for investors, government, mining professionals and other stakeholders,” she said.
The event is organised by Spintelligent, a leading Cape Town-based trade exhibition and conference organiser, and the African office of Clarion Events Ltd, based in the UK in partnership with PwC Nigeria.
