On September 2 -4 MiningWorld Russia international team - Ana Jonic-White and Lucie Kotish – visited Electra Mining 2022 in Johannesburg, which is the largest exhibition in South Africa in the area of Mining, Electrical, Automation, Manufacturing, Power, and Transport.
They were invited personally by Eric Bruggeman, CEO of South African Capital Equipment Export Council (SACEEC). SACEEC is mandated to support and develop a competitive South African capital equipment manufacturing sector. Negotiations between MiningWorld Russia representatives and SACEEC ensured to be a great start for further fruitful cooperation and brining South African manufacturers to the Russian market.
MiningWorld Russia team held a meeting with Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa (MEMSA) as well. MEMSA works hard to build a competitive advantage for South African mining equipment manufacturers by providing access to key markets. Moreover, during all show days MiningWorld Russia team has conducted negotiations with 100+ manufacturers of mining equipment, 30+ confirmed that they are ready to enter the Russian market. Currently, a collective exhibition is being formed and participation of the largest equipment manufacturers in MiningWorld Russia 2023 is being discussed.
The Russian mining industry market is highly potential for foreign countries. Russia ranks in the top three for production of key commodities, such as platinum, gold, and iron ore, underpinning a mining sector that contributed over around $118 bn to the Russian GPD in 2021.
