Global investors will convene at the Forum to discuss financing the establishment or transformation of a new, modern and responsible future minerals industry in the Middle East, Central Asia, and North and East Africa.

The forum provides attendees with an in-depth look at the resource endowment of these regions; their legal and regulatory frameworks, access to land; the role of government; and ease of doing business. Attendees will also hear from and engage with those alredy exploring and mining in the region, what they have done and are doing, and their tips for success.

The Future Minerals Forum will act as the platform for conducting business and establishing long-lasting partnerships with key mining stakeholders. Set within the context of creating opportunities in new parts of the world, where a number of planned structural and legal reforms are underway that aim to stimulate foreign direct investment and develop each country's mining resources.

The forum enables the global mining sector to connect with investors who want to create a new blueprint for a leading-edge industry in the Middle East, Central Asia, and North and East Africa. With the global investor landscape in mining driven by impact investing, the Summit provides a valuable opportunity for miners to work in partnership with investors to acticulate nining's contribution to society.

“Future Minerals Forum is a terrific conference. This yearwas the first time I visited, and it’s been incredibly worthwhile. What Saudi is doing in terms of hosting and convening people is important for what we’re trying to achieve as an industry. We have a huge challenge ahead to meet the massive demand for minerals required for the energy transition.
FMF allowed me to meet incredible people from around the region and provided a great chance for all participants to come together and consider how we can grow the industry to meet that demand. It was a real honor to have the chance to participate.”
