On Wednesday 28th November, The Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC), in partnership with the Rwanda Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board (RMB) hosted an event (The 12th Annual Investing in African Mining seminar) highlighting the considerable opportunity present in the Rwandan mining sector.
Held at Mishcon de Reya LLP’s offices in Central London, the event featured company showcases from Rwanda’s most eminent mining companies (Piran Resources Limited, Power Resources Group Plc and Luna Smelter Ltd), as well as keynote speeches, networking breaks and roundtable-style interactive Q&A sessions.
LuNa was represented by Ms. Aleksandra Cholewa – Member of the Supervisory Board and Mr. Lukasz Banasik – Chief Technologist. The Rwanda mining sector has shown very positive and robust growth figures, with a healthy increase of 21% in export revenues from 2016-2017. Combined with impressive sustained GDP growth of around 8% per annum for almost 20 years, the mining sector is poised to play an important role as a key stimulant for continued economic development.
