Saudi Arabia and Turkey METS webinar

About event:

Join this webinar to learn about the mining industry in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Turkey from Austrade offices as well as industry and government representative speakers from these markets. Recent changes in the mining code and insights on opportunities will be shared.

Saudi Arabia possesses more mineral resources than any other country in the Gulf region and under the Saudi Vision 2030 has ambitious plans to triple the contribution to the Saudi economy made by mining and minerals.

Turkey’s large and diverse mineral resource base allows for a variety of projects at different stages of development, presenting opportunities to Australian METS companies and investors willing to work in the market. The recently announced changes in the Mining Law, particularly for exploration companies, are likely to have a significant impact on the mining industry.

  • The rapid growth and recent changes in the mining code in Saudi Arabia and Turkey
  • Opportunities and what stakeholders/local customers are currently seeking
  • The realities of exporting to Saudi Arabia and Turkey
  • Key market events including the Saudi Mining & Minerals Exhibition 2020, the Mine Safety Conference, Istanbul, December 2019 and the International Mining Congress, Antalya, April 2019
