2nd OECD Meeting of Mining Regions and Cities

The 2nd OECD meeting of Mining Regions and Cities, will be hosted by Australia, Northern Territory’s capital of Darwin from 20-24 November 2018. A preliminary agenda for the event is now available.

The event will include a special focus on mining and extractive industries and regional development in Southeast Asia, as well as innovative partnerships between Indigenous communities and the mining and energy industries. AMCA Chairman, John Bowler will be speaking.

The meeting will be held between 20 and 22 November in Darwin, followed by an optional site visit to Nhulunbuy in East Arnhem Land on 23 and 24 November 2018. This site visit will focus on the success of transitioning Nhulunbuy’s regional economy from a single, mining-focused economy to the establishment of broader interests alongside mining, including tourism and agriculture. It will also showcase the successful, collaborative relationships between the region’s Traditional Owners, the mining industry and Government.
