In a world governed by increasing volatility, those trading in minerals and metals require absolute clarity in the prices, news and forecasts they receive.
The programme will witness a Global CEO Session and Country Panel Discussion, having participation from top CEOs and country heads of national and international organizations, deliberating on the future of minerals and metals worldwide. The event aims to achieve an understanding of the global commodities market for minerals and metals, highlighting the inter-linkage between mineral development and economic growth, the developments in the international metals market that can impact the Indian metals industry and identifying opportunities in Indian mining and metals. The conference will host over 500 delegates from 16 countries. It plans to offer an effective platform to existing and potential metal producers and miners, both domestic and international, for discussing, planning, and establishing mutually beneficial relationships, and will be addressed by 25 international speakers.
