In partnership with the Commonwealth Business Council and UK Trade & Investment, Mining On Top: Africa – London Summit; Sharing the benefits of the commodity boom – will bring together key government officials, senior mining representatives, investors and service providers to create a greater understanding and improve the social and economic outcomes of African mining.

In the first decade of this century, all ten of the fastest growing economies in the world were in Africa, and African foreign direct investment rose five-fold between 2001 and 2010. Indeed, Africa has seen sustained growth since 2000, with the boom being largely commodity driven.
Collaboration is required to ensure that Africa’s abundant mineral wealth is developed to the benefit of all. The London Summit again all constituents to African mining together to promote understanding, and to grapple with the realities of how this can be achieved.
