Webinar RECORDING: Iron ore boom in Africa

Global economies world-wide on the up! Reinvigorating industries that suffered during the worst periods of COVID-19 has become a priority! One of the underlying requirements to rebuild and grow economies is steel! One of the fundamental requirements for this is iron ore!

The iron ore industry has seen phenomenal growth recently, fuelled by government ambition to leave economic suppression caused by the pandemic in the past.

What role does Africa have to play in this iron ore boom period?

The price forecast for 2021 is high – but what about next year and the years thereafter?

How long can these high iron ore prices be sustained?

How does the industry prepare to ensure better pricing flexibility in the future?

These are burning questions for the mining sector and Africa Mining Forum and Mining Review Africa together delivered the answers in a Webinar held 1 July 2021.
