Invest Mongolia 2012 comes at a good time for the country’s mining industry as it will highlight current discussions involving the investment climate, policy direction and new laws which are set to have a major impact on the country’s business sector.
The recent Mongolian parliamentary election has changed the country’s investment landscape with a new Democratic Party government being formed and organizers of the conference, Frontier Securities, say it’s the perfect time for potential investors to reacquaint themselves with the new foreign investment and securities laws.
The conference is renowned as the most comprehensive forum on investing in Mongolia, by facilitating foreign investment in the country and streamlining the capital raising process for domestic companies.
This year’s conference will be held on September 3-5 in Ulaanbaatar, with several high level guest speakers confirming their attendance and roles during the three day agenda. Global Mining Capital president Keith Spence, Erdene’s Tavan Tolgoi (ETT) chief operating officer Graeme Hancock and University of Sydney senior lecturer Nigel Finch are among those to be making presentations.
As well as presentations, the agenda also includes panel discussions and exhibitions as well as a showcase of the investment projects arising in tandem with the growth of the Mongolian economy. Frontier says the event is not only for investors, with service providers, investment bankers and lawyers also among those to present their expertise to delegates.
The three largest mines in Mongolia - Oyu Tolgoi, Tavan Tolgoi and Mongolian Mining Corporation’s Ukhaa Khudag - will also be showcased during the three-day event, with chartered fly-in visits also scheduled for delegates to visit the massive ETT and MMC operations.
