Several leading world economists will make presentations at next month’s Mines & Money Australia in Sydney. The conference is one of a series of global mining investment and capital-raising conventions aimed at identifying the next generation of exciting investment opportunities.
Mines & Money Australia will be held at Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre from October 15-17. More than 1000 delegates and almost 100 mining and exploration companies have registered for the event, following the success of last year’s inaugural conference.
Organizers say the impressive line-up of speakers and exhibitors will provide unparalleled networking opportunities for investors to strike deals regarding some highly attractive valuations in the mining sector.
Keynote economic speaker Andy Xie, who is the director of Rosetta Stone Advisers and a guest columnist with the South China Morning Post and New Century Weekly, will discuss China’s growth outlook and the implications for Australia. Barry Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of Roy Hill, will discuss the challenges of developing one of Australia’s largest and most significant mining, port and rail projects.
Other speakers include David Harquail of Franco Nevada, Joanne Warner from Colonial First State asset management, Baker Steel Capital managing partner David Baker, China Development Bank International’s executive director Mu Lei, Diggers and Drillers editor Alex Cowie, and Tom Price, who is a global commodity analyst at UBS.
Since its inception in 2003 in London, Mines and Money has become the largest series of mining investment events in the world. Since then successful editions have been established in Hong Kong, Beijing and Sydney. More than 650 exhibitors and 8000 delegates attend the four events annually.
Organizers say they have successfully brought together the mining and finance communities through the Mines and Money series, resulting in one of the strongest investor databases in the industry to ensure that exhibitors meet active financiers interested in the natural resource sector.
