Africa Down Under - Mining Exhibition

    September 06, 2017

    Mining Industry Series


    Africa Down Under Conference: there has been a surge in the growth rates of nearly all African countries, largely driven by the unparalleled demand for commodities from China. The ancient land mass of Africa is without question the world’s greatest treasure trove – and has yet to be comprehensively explored using modern techniques.

    The action across the continent is taking place hard and fast. There could not be a better time to explore options and hear stories from the people who are unlocking the wealth of the formerly “Dark Continent”. The lights have come on in Africa, and you cannot afford to miss Africa Down Under, Pan Pacific Perth and Novotel Perth Langley, on 6-8 September, 2017.

    Besides presenting companies, the event will be attended by several African Mining Ministers, business leaders and executives from the mining services industries. Last year, the conference attracted more than 1500 delegates, 100+ exhibitors and a full three day program of top-notch speakers.


    More than 200 Australian companies are already present in Africa, however only 30% are currently in French-speaking Africa.

    While French-Speaking Africa offers huge potential for investments especially in commodities, the challenge of operating in a different linguistic and legal environment compared to that found in English-speaking Africa may be a barrier for Australian companies. France has been instrumental in the development of Francophone Africa on a cultural and commercial level and still plays a large role in their economic balance. Its understanding of the French influence on African culture and history makes it a strong partner in all commercial developments. FACCI has identified a strong need from the French companies established in Australia and in francophone Africa to partner with Australian mining companies in order to share their mutual financial resources, services and expertise. Be part of this new way of doing business and join our FACCI French-Speaking Africa Stand.
