Dar es Salaam. Tanzania will participate for the first time in the African Mining Investment Conference scheduled for February 5 to 8, 2024, in Cape Town, South Africa, the statement issued by the organisers on Tuesday revealed.

Mining Indaba, described as a place for deal sourcing and corporate matchmaking for the African mining industry, expects to bring together about 900 investors, 40 sectoral institutions, and approximately 1,000 executives from large companies worldwide to South Africa.

According to organisers, the conference will serve as an important platform for the participating countries to build and strengthen relationships and business networks in the mining sector. It first occurred in 1994.

It aims to provide a unique opportunity to seek investors, capital, technology, partnerships, trade, share experiences, and learn about the sustainable management and development of Africa’s mining industry.

Tanzania will participate in the event with the theme “Advancing mining investment to accelerate prosperity.” The theme is consistent with the government’s efforts to improve the geological understanding of the country by encouraging increased mineral exploration and mining.

Tanzania recently launched its Vision 2030, which aims to facilitate more geoscientific surveys to uncover the country’s mineral potential. The East African nation also seeks to concentrate its efforts at the conference on promoting investment opportunities in the mining sector, including exploration, extraction, and value-added activities.

The government, led by President Samia Suluhu Hassan, expects to meet with potential stakeholders from various countries, which is an important development for promoting the country’s investment and business opportunities in the mining industry.

A statement released Tuesday stated that the government has collaborated with the Tanzania Chamber of Mines and other private sectors to facilitate the mining sector’s participation in the conference.
