Investment opportunities in Central Asia Mining Sector – An Asian investor’s view
Central Asia , is a region where the most amount of rare metals can be found such as tungsten and chromium. This region is also rich in mineral resources, particularly rare metals, copper and gold that is highly essential for economic growth.
With China’s ban on exporting rare metals and the world’s insatiable demand on technology products, the demand for rare metals has never been higher.
Despite being a resource-rich region, investors are still relatively cautious when it comes to investing into the region. Some Asian investors has embarked on joint ventures with local companies to minimise their risks. One such example is Kazakhstan’s Kazatomprom and Japan’s Toshiba Corp. – who have established a joint venture to produce and market rare earth elements.
Representing this JV company, it Deputy General Director Mr Hiroshi Eguci,will speak on plans to build up a vertically integrated company for manufacturing and global marketing of high-value added products based on rare and rare earth minerals at the upcoming Central Asia Mining Congress 2012.
