Mines and Money launched its inaugural African mining investment event, welcoming 180 delegates to the financial centre of Mauritius for three days of exclusive meetings, deal-making and knowledge sharing on investment opportunities in Africa.

Attending delegates from the mining industry met with Chinese SOEs and POEs, international fund managers, sovereign wealth funds and Asian steel producers in exclusive private meetings during the three days.

Mauritius has established itself as a leading financial centre for the African continent due to its favourable investment environment, sealed with 19 investor protection treaties and 17 taxation agreements with Sub-Saharan African governments. With its positioning as the bridge for Asian investment into Africa, it provides a fitting location to host the conference and exhibition, identifying opportunities for investors in a neutral location while showcasing how Mauritius can act as a platform from which to invest efficiently in the African continent.

An expected US$80 billion of foreign direct investment is expected to enter Africa this year and this includes significant investment in the mining sector. As Asian countries continue to secure raw materials for ongoing urbanisation and infrastructure projects, Mines and Money Access Africa delivered a platform to connect Asian capital providers with executives from mining companies operating in Africa. Attending delegates from the mining industry met with Chinese SOEs and POEs, international fund managers, sovereign wealth funds and Asian steel producers in exclusive private meetings during the three days. The investor delegation included Chinalco Resources Corporation, China Mining United Fund, China Investment Corporation, China Africa Development Fund, Essar Steel, JSW Steel, JOGMEC and more. Joining them were leading institutional and private investors from Europe, South America, Australia and North America. Delivering analysis and discussion during the conference this week was an impressive line-up of experts, including the Oman Investment Fund, China Chengtong Holdings Group, CRU, China Iron & Steel Association, Rio Tinto, Tata Steel, Imara Asset Management, AfrAsia Bank and many more. The programme was designed to highlight investment opportunities in the region while examining government policies, evaluating risk and providing advice on how investors can gain the best returns on their capital. Mauritius has established itself as a leading financial centre for the African continent due to its favourable investment environment, sealed with 19 investor protection treaties and 17 taxation agreements with Sub-Saharan African governments. With its positioning as the bridge for Asian investment into Africa, it provides a fitting location to host the conference and exhibition, identifying opportunities for investors in a neutral location while showcasing how Mauritius can act as a platform from which to invest efficiently in the African continent. We are looking towards working with our partners to grow the event next year and hopefully this post show report will show you why and how Mines and Money Access Africa should be part of your event schedule for 2015.
