Chinese Align With ICMM to Promote Mining
Chinese investment in mining abroad is a relatively new concept and Chinese mining companies are often newcomers in the economies of resource-rich countries. They are, however, increasingly becoming the most significant investor in many countries, and this is likely to continue, according to the ICMM.
“This new agreement will enable us to both learn from each other and further improve the environmental and social performance of the mining sector,” said Dr. Nicky Black, director of environment and social progress at ICMM. “Our strategic cooperation will advance sustainable development in the mining industry,” said Sun Lihui, director, development department, CCCMC.
CCCMC counts 6,300 companies as members and they are engaged in many aspects of minerals from mining to processing minerals for chemical production and agricultural uses.
