Upswing in interest for South East Asian mining

Share this article

Mining Investment Asia (, South East Asia’s largest mining conference and exhibition showcasing South East Asia’s mining sector to an international audience of investors and various mining stakeholders, has received strong interest from global companies to sponsor and exhibit for the 2020 edition.

Compared to the same time period last year, there has been a 20% jump in number of confirmed sponsors and exhibitors, with a third of the available exhibition spaces for 2020 already snapped up. With 3 months remaining to the event, at least another 10 companies are expected to confirm their presence at Mining Investment Asia.

Why the spike in interest for South East Asia and in particular, Singapore?

South East Asia mining industry has dominated global mining news headlines over the last 2 months. The most significant development was the export ban announced by Indonesia, the world’s largest nickel producer, which propelled global nickel prices to a 4 year high.

Beyond mining, the global finance community has also been looking towards Singapore as a more secure and stable Asian financial hub. Amidst the protracted and at times violent confrontations in Hong Kong, global investors are turning to other Asian financial hubs such as Singapore. This presents a perfect opportunity for South East Asian miners to reach out to new sources of financing options via Mining Investment Asia Conference in Singapore.
