The success of the inaugural Kenya Mining Forum that was hosted by the Ministry of Mining, in collaboration with the Chamber of Mines, highlighted the fact that it is an opportune time to promote investment in Kenya.
The Mining Act, approved in May 2016, has provided more transparency and credibility for investors. Moreover, the Cabinet Secretary, Hon. Dan Kazungu, highlighted the potential of the mining sector to contribute up to 10% of the GDP in 2030 compared to 1% in 2015.
With the support of key presentations and dynamic debates, local and international mining magnates provided valuable insight into what the sector has to offer to the country and the East African region.
Kenya Mining Forum aims to ally its objectives with the Ministry of Mining’s vision and be an annual meeting place for East Africa mining stakeholders to share and present their policies in the region.
We would like to thank all the sponsors and participants for their support that contributed to the relevance of the discussions, and potential business synergies created during this two-day networking platform.
"The first Kenya Mining Forum was an undeniable success. Both the Ministry of Mining and the forum organisers should be congratulated on an engaging couple of days. Base Titanium was impressed by the level of participation the content of discussions and enjoyed the opportunity to demonstrate our success to a wide audience. We look forward to next year’s event being bigger and better" Simon Wall, External Affairs Manager, Base Titanium, Kenya.
