Recently Mali has been noted to be a desirable place for investment following news of new discoveries.

The discoveries have tripled the estimates of the nation’s Bauxite reserves, encouraging the country’s rise in gold production and attracting investors.

Complementing the attraction, the Malian government has also aimed to improve and modernise transparency in issuing mining licenses.

The conference will include a trade exhibition, workshops, conference sessions, and discussions.

The events will focus on encouraging diversification, improving infrastructure, furthering economic development, and increasing socio-economic benefits by bringing in investors from across the world to an untapped market.

The theme of JMP MALI 2017 is “The exploitation of mineral resources integrated into the economy as a factor of sustainable development.”
