Economic Diversification

Recent reports and surveys of the region have estimated the value of its mineral reserves exceeding US$ 1 trillion. Opportunities of investments, exploration and productions are rapidly developing, considering the region’s diversification plans

Economic diversification is on the national agenda of many countries in the Middle East and developing the mining industry is a priority to diversify from an oil-based economy in order to achieve economic resilience.

Taking into consideration the vast potential in mining, key enablers and authorities involved in the transformation of the mining sector are making great strides towards developing their long-term mining strategy which will offer exciting opportunities in exploration and investment.
