New ‘Coal in Asia’ segment to be launched at the 6th Mining Investment Asia Conference in Singapore in 2020

Mining Investment Asia, Southeast Asia’s largest mining conference and exhibition showcasing Southeast Asia’s mining sector to an international audience of investors and various mining stakeholders, is scheduled to return to Singapore from 17 - 19 March 2020.

For this 6th edition, a brand new full day segment entitled ‘Coal in Asia’ will be launched on 17 March to complement the event’s current focus on mining financing, technology and gender diversity.

Why Coal in Asia?

Coal is a dominant fuel in the rapidly growing economies of South East Asia even amidst a global move towards clean energy. Within the Asian region, India, China and Indonesia play major roles both as consumers and producers of coal. Hence, ‘Coal in Asia’ seeks to focus on what lies ahead for coal in the region and the key drivers for transformation. Major national and private coal mining companies are confirming their participation, with key stakeholders such as Indonesia Coal Mining Association (APBI-ICMA) already supporting this event.
