CSA Global Director of Europe and Africa, Galen White and Principal Consultant-South Africa, Andre Vorster are looking forward to meeting you at Africa Down Under between the 6-8 September 2017 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Perth, Western Australia.
The positive, changing face of the African continent is beginning to see resurgence in the global resources sector following a difficult four-year period. Interest in Africa’s mineral potential is also beginning to return among investors. There has undoubtedly been a positive sentiment and growing confidence in the future of the resources sector in Africa, and indeed, in Africa-Australia relations.
This year’s conference marks 15 years since Africa Down Under commenced and features in-depth discussions involving experts in the fields of security on the continent, infrastructure and project financing; while raising awareness of the resources opportunities on offer throughout Africa.
