The Lands and Natural Resources Minister Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh said concerns about the limited development of the African continent especially in countries dependent on mineral resources made African heads of state and governments adopt the African Mining Vision (AMV) as the continent’s blueprint for mineral-led development.
Hon. Asomah Cheremeh stated this at the International Mining Ministers Summit held on the sidelines of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada mining Conference (PDAC) underway in Toronto-Canada.
The AMV is seeking to integrate Africa’s mineral sector into the Continent social and economic development process through creating a diversified and globally competitive African mineral industry which contributes to broad economic and social growth.
