The Arandis Investment Conference which will be hosted together with the first-ever Mineral, Mining and Energy Expo, is positioned as a catalyst for investment spin-offs specifically for the town of Arandis.
The conference is scheduled to take place from 25 to 27 April 2013 at the Namibia Institute of Mining and Technology campus under the theme “ Arandis Finding Financial Solutions for Development Initiatives.” Meanwhile, the start to the Husab Project has also been announced, adding additional weight to the ministry’s efforts. Given the need to accommodate around 4000 construction workers, Arandis is expected to boom before the end of this year.
The 2-day conference will focus on the investment potential that Arandis holds due to its strategic geographical location and the potential for the town’s growth in industrialisation, education and mining , particularly in servicing the mining industry in the Erongo Region.
