Peter von Klemperer, the Head of Mining and Metals Standard Bank says that this would be a game changer for the economy, placing Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in a position to transform into a middle-income country by 2050.
Standard Bank Group will be an exclusive Diamond Plus sponsor at the DRC Mining Week that returns to Lubumbashi from 19-21 June this year.
“DRC is just too important a jurisdiction from a resource volume and grade quality perspective for any serious player in the global mining sector to ignore. Standard Bank remains excited about the opportunities and prospects offered by this important mining investment destination and key global resources supplier,” explained Mr Klemperer.
More than 3500 international mining experts and local stakeholders from more than 50 countries are expected to attend this iconic exhibition and conference, which is celebrating 15 years of gathering the mining community in the country.
