Don’t miss your opportunity to engage with global leaders, world-renowned speakers and industry experts at the 2nd annual OECD meeting of Mining Regions and Cities being held in Darwin from 20-22 November 2018. Hosting this meeting places Territory Businesses at the forefront of global conversations regarding cutting edge approaches in the energy and mining industries with exposure to approximately 300 delegates from OECD member nations. It provides a significant opportunity to showcase industry capability, innovation and opportunity. And with a truly global reach, opens up important linkages for our local businesses to build their connections and grow their footprint both within Australia, our region and the world.

The meeting in Darwin will include a special focus on the energy and mineral industries, regional development in south-east Asia, and innovative partnerships between Aboriginal communities and industry. Updated Agenda is available here.

Experts speaking on these topics include:

  • Canadian Indigenous leader Dawn Madahbee Leach
  • President Director of PT Inalum Budi Gunadi Sadikin from Indonesia
  • General Manager of Northern Australian Development and Trade, Luke Bowen.

We already have strong registrations across our OECD member countries from Latin America, to South East Asia and beyond across the private sector, government and academia. Ministers from Thailand and Indonesia, along with Governor’s from Alaska, Canada and the Philippines are confirmed to travel to Darwin. Opportunities to network will be provided through a number of social events, including an optional Harbour Cruise and Welcome Reception hosted by the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory, the Hon Michael Gunner in the Main Hall of Parliament House.
