Summit Business Media to launch mining event in Asia
New York—Summit Business Media, publisher of National Underwriter Property & Casualty, plans to launch next year a new event, Investing in Asian Mining Indaba. The event builds on Summit's mining investment event, Investing in African Mining Indaba, which has been produced for 18 years.
The new event, which will be held in Singapore in October 2012, is aimed at financiers, investors and international mining companies.
“Unprecedented demand for iron ore, coal, uranium and other natural resources further augments the importance of stimulating more mining activity in the region,” Jonathan Moore, senior VP-managing director of Mining Indaba. “We intend to achieve the same goals as we did with Africa more than 18 years ago, and that is to channel foreign investment into Asian mining to help meet these supply challenges.”
