Minister for Energy and Resources, Lily D’Ambrosio last night met with resource sector industry stakeholders to launch the second annual International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC).
Ms D’Ambrosio said that Australia’s resources, equipment, technology and services (RETS) industry credentials and Melbourne’s reputation for holding large world class events provide the perfect setting for IMARC to bring together global leaders from government, investment, exploration and research and development.
The conference, to be held from 9 – 13 November, will provide an opportunity for businesses to build relationships in the resources sector to grow their business and promote their capability in the mining sector internationally.
As part of IMARC, the Andrews Labor Government will be hosting the “Promoting Best Practice Regulation and Policy Excellence” event, where resources ministers and senior business leaders from around the world will gather to discuss critical issues facing the sector.
The inaugural conference last year attracted over 2,000 delegates from more than 31 countries and is now positioned as one of Australia’s largest resources sector conferences and exhibitions.
