Event Overview

In 2015 Metal Bulletin’s African Iron Ore Conference re-emerged as the African Iron and Steel Conference in Mozambique. This was a reflection of the exciting occurring investments that can dramatically impact steel making and iron ore demand in the region. Mozambique has the potential to be a standard setting example of how to make the most of iron and steel in Africa and, with a new President in power, it was the best time to hear what the government has in store for its power and manufacturing sector.

Government ministers, miners, investors and infrastructure specialists from all over the world came together to discuss the major trends across Africa.
