The focus of the 13th China Mining Congress and Expo in Tianjin next week is to strengthen international cooperation and accelerate geological exploration and mine development. The expo includes a conference, exhibition and associated events.
Since the inaugural China Mining Expo in 1999, the event’s scope and influence has increased each year, with nine mining ministers from different countries attending last year’s event.
In 2010 more than 5000 delegates from 60 countries attended the expo, making it a major platform for world mining players. The expo covers geological survey, exploration development, mining rights trading, mining investment and financing, smelting and processing and mining services across more than 600 booths.
Organizers say the expo plays a critical role in creating more communication and cooperation opportunities for domestic and international industry communities.
Chinese government officials, industry leaders, and experts from both local and foreign mining industries will facilitate in-depth discussions relating to all aspects of the mining industry.
Hosted by the Chinese Ministry of Land and Resources and the Tianjin Municipal Government, the expo will be held at Tianjin Meijiang Convention Centre from November 6-8.
