Saudi Mining and Minerals 2015 conference, exhibition set

A Saudi Mining and Minerals 2015 conference and exhibition is being organized for the first time with the support of Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Ali Al-Naimi to help shed light on how the Kingdom can achieve its global mining and minerals aspirations.
The conference together with an exhibition will be held on Oct. 27-29, at the Prince Sultan Grand Hall, Al Faisaliah Exhibition & Convention Centre in Riyadh.
“Saudi Arabia holds rich mineral resources like tantalum, niobium, REE, quartz, and iron ore among others that provide manufacturing opportunities to develop high value products for the growing demand of several advanced industries such as automotive, aerospace, solar and oil and gas.
Investors in these opportunities will benefit from the Kingdom’s competitive advantage in energy and the provided financial incentives, says Khalid Al-Salem, president, National Industrial Cluster Development Program (NICDP), a government entity set up to grow and diversify the Kingdom’s economy by developing targeted industrial clusters and leveraging its rich natural resources.
Another key speaker at the event, Paul Robinson, director at CRU Group, a global leader in mining and metals analysis, says phosphate is one commodity where Saudi Arabia is well positioned to become a leading regional supplier.
The Saudi Mining and Minerals Symposium 2015, jointly organized by MEED Events and Montgomery Star, will also feature an exhibition participated in by leading local and international companies showcasing the very latest products, services and technologies in the mining and minerals sector.
The first event of its kind in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Mining and Minerals Symposium is supported by the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources and the National Industrial Cluster Development Program, as well as Maaden, Atheeb, Outotec, Ali Salem Al-Raddadi Factory, Saudi Specialty Chemical Ind. Co. Ltd., ThyssenKrupp, SRK Consulting, and Roscoe Postle Associates, Inc.
