The ministry refers, in a statement to which VerAngola had access, that the national delegation's calendar also provides for a mining investment forum, which will take place under the motto "Critical Minerals for Energy Transition" and will be coordinated by Diamantino Azevedo, minister of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas.
"In the agenda of the Angolan delegation there is a Mining Investment forum registered for the 7th, 'Angola Day', which takes place under the motto 'Critical Minerals for Energy Transition'. The event will be coordinated by the Minister of Mineral Resources, Petroleum and Gas, Diamantino Azevedo," reads the statement.
According to the document, the national delegation will be made up of officials from the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas, Endiama, Sodiam, the Geological Institute of Angola, the National Agency for Mineral Resources, representatives of private companies in the Mining Sector and the Consulate General of Angola in Cape Town.
The note also adds that two stands are being set up, one institutional and the other for mining companies, both diamond and non-diamond, where "outstanding professionals will be present to present their services and networking".
It should be noted that Mining Indaba concerns the largest mining investment event in Africa, boasting "a proven track record of bringing together ministers, senior government representatives, mining companies, investors, professional services, as well as mining equipment and service providers".
For this year, the event should receive more than 6500 participants, and the president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, will open the event.
