The Chamber of Mines (FEC) is the official partner of DRC Mining Week and has facilitated economic relations between mining operators and suppliers. DRC Mining Week is the only mining and industrial exhibition and conference offering strategic solutions and innovative technologies improving the productivity of mining operations in the DRC.
Celebrating 15 years of partnerships and successes since the creation of iPAD DRC Mines & Infrastructure with a handful of key sponsors, DRC Mining Week welcomed over 160 sponsors and exhibitors in June 2018 including the exclusive participation of 49 companies from three international pavilions; South Africa, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom.
The growing presence of local and international companies is a sign of the health and potential of the mining sector impact on DRC’s GDP. The presence and representation of the Ministry of Mines was truly appreciated during the debates and discussions, acknowledging that the "face-to-face" between the main operators, exploration companies and service providers was crucial to improve the quality of mining operations.
