Realizing potential and taking calculated steps for a promising future
The global mining industry is currently experiencing an influx of pain points. A perpetually increasing energy demand, fluctuating commodity prices, pressing security issues, and social and environmental responsibilities only tap the surface. The Euro Zone crisis and a lagging U.S. economic recovery following the Global Financial Crisis are impacting mining industries around the world. But despite economic woes, mining prospects are looking up.
As investors are searching for promising industrial projects amid the on-going mining boom, geological potential is emerging. Given lucrative opportunities in Latin America and Africa, the Australian mining industry must harness and maximize its potential to remain competitive in the global market.
The mining boom has seen increased commodity volumes and higher employment in the Australian mining industry in recent years, and continued growth is expected. Resources and energy commodity earnings are slated to increase in 2013 due to higher export values for iron ore, gold, thermal and metallurgical coal, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), copper and alumina.
However, continued growth has been hampered in part by economic troubles in the U.S. and Euro Zone, as well as Chinas slow-moving economy affecting global commodity prices. Labor shortages, governmental obstacles and rising costs stand in the way of success, and effective decision-making moving forward will be crucial.
To maximize industry potential and realize organizational goals, Australias leading mining executives must stay up-to-date on current issues and trends.
The Mining Summit Australia will bring together leading mining industry executives from all over the country to confront and overcome current industry issues. This event will explore overarching E&P concerns, as well as those specific to leading product targets. Attending delegates will discuss the current standing and future of the Australian mining industry, sharing best practices for growth through sustainable operations, efficient and safe E&P and a reduced negative impact on the environment.
The Mining Summit Australia will enable attending executives to network with peers and learn from each others experiences through engaging educational sessions conducted in a comfortable, yet focused business environment. The event agenda offers opportunities for critical exchanges through visionary Keynote Presentations, CIO Think Tanks, Thought Leadership workshops, Analyst Q&As and much more.
