Why Arab Mining?
1.In recent years the mining industry in the Middle East and North Africa has enjoyed intensified investor interest and an acceleration in FDI inflows, yet a number of highly prospective areas remain under-explored.
2.Governments are seeking to avoid over-reliance on the energy sector and diversify their economies by expanding their mining industries. Recent legislative changes are designed to attract FDI and encourage greater mining investment.
3.Increased exploration activity has resulted in a number of young and economically viable projects. More prospective licenses have been issued across the region than ever before.
