The 6th Fujairah International Mining Forum and Expo (IMF) will be held from February 26 - 28 under the patronage of H H Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, to promote investments in quarrying and mining in the Arab region.
The three-day forum will be held under the title, ‘In line with Zayed's vision, Investing our wealth is a National Priority’, and will be organised by the Fujairah Natural Resources Corporation (FNRC) in collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry and the Arab Industrial Development and Mining Organisation.
The event will discuss the need for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the sector and will assess the environmental impacts of industrial quarrying. It will also discuss ways to develop the expertise of Arab citizens engaged in the mining and quarrying industries.
In addition to these, the forum will encourage cooperation between the public and private sectors and discuss ways to promote recycling of waste from mining industries and the use of renewable energy sources.
The forum will be accompanied by an exhibition to showcase products and services offered by mining companies, as well as equipment and machineries used in all stages of mining.
