With the coal industry playing a major role in driving growth throughout the Asia Pacific region and presenting investment opportunities, the Financing and Investing in Coal conference in Singapore on September 29 and 30 will be an ideal forum for those interested in the industry.

The event is being organized by Coaltrans Conferences. It will bring together senior decision makers from leading coal companies, with financiers and investors keen to work together to capitalize on the potential of this booming market.

Taking place on September 29 and 30 at the Hilton Singapore, this event will identify, analyse and evaluate the investment and financing opportunities in the coal industry in the Asia Pacific.

The comprehensive agenda will include keynote presentations, case studies and panel discussions with leading and emerging coal companies sharing their plans for growth and their future financing requirements.

Among the keynote speakers are PT Berau Coal Energy’s finance director John J Ramos who will outline the challenges and opportunities facing coal producers, examine where growth will come from, forecast future financing requirements, assess domestic versus international financing options, and study partnership and investment prospects for financiers and investors.

PT Indo Tambangraya Megah (ITM) finance director Edward Manurung will look at the opportunities and challenges for coal producers in a high demand environment, will address financing expansion and development, and will speak about ITM’s plans for growth.

Financing and Investing in Coal will also give junior miners and project developers the opportunity to showcase their business plans and financing requirements. Four hours of the two-day conference has been reserved for small to medium coal mining companies to make brief presentations on their capital raising needs.
