Diamantino Azevedo, who heads the national delegation to the event that started this Monday in Cape Town, noted that the disclosure of the country's mining potential aims to attract investors to prospect and research these minerals in Angolan soil.
"For this conference we specifically bring the promotion of minerals that are necessary for the energy transition, we do not mean that we are only concerned with the important minerals for the energy transition, but to publicize the potential that the country also has" , said the ruler.
Speaking on the sidelines of the opening of this conference, which runs until Thursday and which brings together various operators from the mining sector on the African continent and beyond, Diamantino Pedro Azevedo also highlighted the presence of Angolan companies at the event.
"We bring the institutional part, where we make known how companies can obtain mining rights so that they can develop their activity in our country, as well as the infrastructure that we already have to support the mining industry", he said.
Angola's actions and potential in terms of the mining industry will be specifically addressed in a panel, as part of the conference, scheduled for Tuesday.
According to the minister, the delegation he heads, with a very busy agenda, should also keep in touch with leaders of various global companies in the sector and with financial institutions interested in financing the national mining sector.
The INDABA Mining Conference is considered the largest African investment event in the mining sector.
