Mining Baraza, previously Kenya Mining Forum is an exclusive annual international platform for mining professionals in Kenya and the East African region.
The confex is a stakeholder-led gathering focused on a specific delegate profile with a distinct end goal – the search for credible investors in Kenya and the region’s mining industry as well as associated support services.
The participation of key Chamber members is incentivising international participation that we are growing to 39% in 2018. Our discussion with the Ministry of Mining and key stakeholders in the region highlighted the fact that now is the opportune time to promote investment in Kenya as the new mining act has been implemented in May 2016 and regulations have been made; providing more transparency and credibility for investors. Moreover, Kenya has been working with McKinsey on a 20-year mining plan that already highlighted a potential of USD 62.4b mining revenues. In a year, Kenya has jumped 16 places to position 86 from 102 in the most attractive global mining destinations (source:Fraser Institute)
Mining Baraza is an early-to-market investment platform bringing stakeholders together to facilitate investment and development of Kenya and the East African region’s mining sector. Kenya is still in early exploration of its mineral potential. The Forum‘s annual meeting place enables East Africa mining stakeholders to share and present their policies setting in the region. Evolving the mining conference toward a regional exhibition will allow us to create a consistent platform for Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Uganda, existing solid trade partners.
The goal is to settle robust legal framework along with transparent processes in line with Kenya’s mining vision. We want to establish and consolidate Kenya’s position as a regional mining hub in order to use the sector as a key driver for socio-economic growth.
