CSA Global’s Principal Geologist, Warren Potma and Principal Consultant, Ian Stockton are looking forward to meeting you at the Latin America Down Under between 16-17 May 2018 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Perth, Western Australia.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Strong growth trends and growing economic clout have seen Latin America become the rising star of the international economy in the last decade and the resources sector has played a key role in that emergence. Australian industry participants have played their part in that growth and the Australian government is now using the linkages built in resources to enhance its relations with the nations and economies of Latin America.
