A high-level delegation from Ghana is attending the 25th China Mining Conference and Exhibition from 26th to 28th October 2023 in Tianjin, China, to attract investment in the country’s mining industry.
The delegation is led by Ghana’s Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel A. Jinapor, and includes officials from the government and private sector.
The conference brings together major players in mining from around the world.
This is the first in-person conference since the pandemic.
Ahead of the conference, the sector Minister met with selected Chinese mining companies already operating in Ghana, such as Shandong Gold Group and Tianyuan Manganese Industry Group.
He highlighted new opportunities for investment and growth in the sector.
On Thursday, Minister Jinapor will join Chinese Minister, Wang Guang Hua in a formal opening of the conference.
He will also participate in a discussion with other Ministers focusing on developments and sustainability in mining.
In the Country Promotion Session on Friday, Mr Jinapor will make the case for increased Chinese investment in value-added processing of Ghana’s mineral resources to support economic growth.
Ghana is taking advantage of the first in-person conference since the pandemic to promote its mining industry globally.
Other members of the delegation include senior officials from the Minerals Commission, Minerals Income Investment Fund and Parliament.
