Many Australian companies are involved in the mining industry in Indonesia and the annual OZMINE exhibition and conference aims to showcase the capabilities of Australia.
OZMINE 2011 will be held in Jakarta on March 29 and 30, and will be the fifth annual event organized by Austrade Jakarta.
In 2010, more than 80 Australian companies exhibited at OZMINE and the event attracted some 2000 trade and industry visitors. The event also draws regional industry and government players through Austrade’s regional ASEAN Mining Team.
OZMINE provides participants with the opportunity to meet mining professionals in Indonesia and from across ASEAN as well as to develop relationships with key contacts in the region.
Minerals and related products account for a fifth of Indonesia’s exports and in line with increased interest in the resources sector Indonesia’s existing mining sector is in full production.
Globally, Indonesia is the leading exporter of thermal coal and the second largest exporter of coal after Australia. Coal production has grown rapidly over the last decade and owing to high demand within the region, including Japan, South Korea and India, there is further interest in the exploration, development of new mines and expansion of existing mines within the coal sector.
Indonesia is also richly endowed with mineral reserves and globally ranks second in the tin, third in copper and fourth in the production of nickel. The country is also a leading producer of gold.
OZMINE enables exhibitors and participants to hear from local experts and develop a richer understanding of the ASEAN market.
It enables exhibitors to create awareness of their products and services, and to capture business in Indonesia by showcasing Australian capabilities in specialist sub-sectors of the mining industry.
