The UK Department of International Trade (UK DIT) has announced their partnership with the organisers of Nigeria Mining Week, for the launch of an exciting digital trade show, aiming to drive collaboration between the UK and Nigeria for the development of mining activities.

 

Despite the recent challenges to the industry globally, the interest in Nigeria's mining future has not receded. The small-scale mining sector, in particular, is ripe with opportunities for development.

 

"The UK has many years of experience in the mining sector and over time, has developed an array of solutions and technologies that can change how mining is done," says Oluwaseyi Adepoju, Trade Advisor at the UK DIT. "The goal is to join forces to create a safer prosperous mining sector in Nigeria," he adds.

 

High-level Speakers at Opening


Supported by Nigeria's Ministry of Mines and Steel Development, the Miners Association of Nigeria and PwC Nigeria, the online trade show will include a high-level opening ceremony and showcase more than ten companies.

 

Registration and participation in the UK DIT digital trade show is free of charge and open to anyone looking to attend the trade show and reach out to the exhibitors.

 

"The audience should expect a wide range of mining technologies and equipment from a variety of UK suppliers and manufacturers, eager to engage with the audience. There will also be partner financial institutions willing to offer equipment financing options." explains Oluwaseyi.

 

"It's also an opportunity to network with mining stakeholders, officials, association representatives, mining experts, banks and finance houses."

 

The trade show will be held on an innovative platform, enabling networking, video meetings, questions, and answers as well as live chats.

Digital Value Add


"We've seen throughout the COVID pandemic during the last year that mining activities in Nigeria have continued wherever possible, while digital engagement has been invaluable to keep the communication lines and even more importantly, business discussions, open," says Sabrina Tab, event manager of
Nigeria Mining Week, the leading trade expo and conference in the country for the last five years.

 

"Our own digital offering has also evolved to support our partners through this time and the backing and enthusiasm of the mining community have been infectious. We look forward to being part of this next digital offering with the UK DIT, which is a golden opportunity for all stakeholders to explore UK-Nigeria synergies for the prosperity of the country's mining sector. And then I know the next live Nigeria Mining Week in Abuja in October, is eagerly awaited by all."
