Why Arab Mining?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
