Australia’s mining expertise will be on show at Ozmine2012, the country’s key ASEAN mining exhibition and conference, which will be held in Jakarta at the Shangri La Hotel on April 17 and 18. The event is expected to draw more than 2500 trade visitors including from Australia and ASEAN countries.
The event is themed ‘Sustainable and Responsible Mining: ASEAN and Australia in Synergy’ and will bring together more than 100 Australian mining-related organizations, in addition to those from Indonesia and other ASEAN countries as exhibitors. The exhibition will showcase the latest in mining equipment, technology, services and consumables from the world-class Australian mining sector.
The exhibition will be officially opened by Indonesian Minister for Energy and Mineral Resources HE Jero Wacik, together with Australian Ambassador to Indonesia Greg Moriarty.
“Some of the largest Australian mining companies will take part - together they already employ many of the million-plus Indonesians who are working in the mining industry in this country,” says Ambassador Moriarty.
“Australian companies have made long-term investments in Indonesia and are committed to sustainable and responsible mining practices. They make substantial local contributions through training, technology transfer, dedicated education programs, and significant CSR programs and initiatives,” he adds.
The mining sector is an economic mainstay for both Indonesia and Australia. “Mining creates hundreds of thousands of jobs, attracts important foreign direct investment and contributes billions of dollars to our economies through exports of minerals, mining services and technologies,” says Ambassador Moriarty.
