Story by Yolanda Moyo

ZIMBABWE’S premier mining, engineering, and transport showcase, Mine Entra, which will be held in Bulawayo from the 1st to the 3rd of next month, is set to provide a platform to showcase the country’s success story.

The 26th edition of Mine Entra which comes on the backdrop of huge developments and investments in the mining sector is expected to create a platform to review progress on the target of a US$12 billion mining economy.

The 2023 edition will also be a showcase of innovations in mining and mineral processing while also providing an effective platform to drive growth and sustainable development.

200 exhibitors have confirmed participation, with nine foreign exhibitors coming from the People’s Republic of China and South Africa.

“Next week, we are hosting another biggest trade and investment expo. The mining sector has the potential to catalyse economic transformation through job creation, higher mining industry profitability, increased FDI and other multiplier benefits, all in line with the National Development Strategy (NDS1), which is integral in the pursuit of the attainment of Vision 2030,” said ZITF CEO, Dr Nicholas Ndebele.

He added, “As organisers, our expectation is that this year’s show will be characterised by three days of high-level engagement, profitable networking and on-site deal-flow. The Mine Entra event diary has been curated to feature diverse networking and knowledge-sharing platforms that seek to further propel the national impetus to make mining a catalyst for inclusive economic growth, now and into the future.”

One of the major highlights at this year’s expo is the Small-Scale and Artisanal Miners Conference.

“The Small-Scale and Artisanal Miners Conference scheduled for Friday3 November, will provide an invaluable platform for small-scale and artisanal miners, industry experts, policymakers, and stakeholders to gather. This conference, aligned with the broad Mine Entra 2023 theme, runs under the sub-theme of “Unlocking Zimbabwe’s Mining Potential: Empowering Small-scale and Artisanal Miners.” It will highlight the significant economic contribution made by these miners and the need to create a conducive environment that fosters their growth and development,” he went on.

Alongside business to business meetings, the mining expo will also host the inaugural Lithium and Battery Minerals Conference and the Joint Suppliers and Producers Forum on the first day of the exhibition.
