“Improving Brand Nigeria in the international mining space”

Nigeria Mining Week, the flagship mining conference and expo in West Africa, will return to Abuja from 15-17 October following its tremendous success in October 2017. “Not only a landmark achievement, but an encouragement for the mining sector” is how Alh. Sani Shehu, the President of MAN (Miners Association of Nigeria), described the second edition of Nigeria Mining Week. He adds: “the participation of about 14 nations is an illustration of the desire of global players, service and technology providers to go beyond their shores and tap into the minerals-rich soil of Nigeria.”

Improvement in Brand Nigeria
Mines and Steel Development Minister Dr Kayode Fayemi said during his opening keynote address that according to a recent World Risk Report, Nigeria had made remarkable improvements in both hard risk and perceived risk factors, stating: “the Nigerian mining jurisdiction is now considered to have a better investment risk profile than Russia, China, India and several other leading jurisdictions. Nigeria is now ‘perceived’ to have a better investment risk profile than New York!”

The event will receive again the strategic support from the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development, the Miners Association of Nigeria (MAN) and PwC. Cyril Azobu is Advisory Partner and Mining Leader at PwC Nigeria and states: "any individual or organisation interested in exploring the many opportunities Nigeria’s solid minerals sector presents should plan to be at Nigeria Mining Week 2018.

Strategic platform for the mineral sector
Nigeria Mining Week offers a one-stop-shop to engage directly with policy makers, financiers and mining investors as well as the opportunity to gain the most current information on geophysical data on the resources available to explore in Nigeria. The third annual event will provide a platform to engage with over 700 small scale miners through MAN, 10 Nigerian states displaying and promoting opportunities in small and medium scale mining and over 100 mining and exploration companies.
