Australia Business Week in India (ABWI) - 28 August to 1 September 2017

Join an Australian METS mission to India during ABWI 2017!

The Indian mining sector has seen a shift in regulations and policies, and an increased focus on new technology and practices that improve the environmental, social and economic impacts of mining. While public sector companies dominate India’s mining landscape, private sector players such as Tata Steel, Vedanta, Aditya Birla, Reliance, Adani and Jindal have also risen to prominence. These companies are making significant investments in mining-related technology, and R&D. With ambitious new production targets and stricter safety, environmental and water management regulations, Australian METS suppliers are well positioned to feed the growing appetite for innovative and cost-effective mining solutions.

For the upcoming Australia Business Week in India, there will be a dedicated METS program, which provides a unique opportunity for Australian mining suppliers to engage in the market. The Hon Steven Ciobo MP, Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, will lead the mission and the agenda includes meetings with leading companies and organisations in New Dehli, Hyderabad and the mining hub of Kolkata. 

The program has been developed by Austrade in India and is free for eligible Australian METS suppliers.  Numerous Indian Mining companies will be present including:

  • Adani Mining
  • Hindustan Zinc Limited (HZL), Coal India Limited, The Singareni Collieries Company Limited
  • Jindal Steel & Power Limited (Mine modernisation focus for METS)

Other highlights:

  • Mining Education and Skills / Safety sessions
  • Clean coal technologies seminar
  • Australian companies working in India to share their experiences, such as Barminco
  • Finishes with an option mine site visit.
Expressions of interest close on 4th August 2017.
