A new mining and metallurgy tradition for Kazakhstan
The Ministry of Industry and New Technologies of the Republic of Kazakhstan has announced new dates for the Kazakhstan Mining and Metallurgy Days - 12 and 13 June 2013.
At a meeting between the Ministry and the organising committee, the decision was taken to hold the event three weeks earlier than usual. The change was motivated by the tight schedule of Astana Day events and the busy diaries of official representatives.
As was the case last year, the Kazakhstan Mining and Metallurgy Days will again combine two important events for the industry: the Congress of Workers of the Mining and Metallurgy Industry and Astana Mining and Metallurgy (AMM), the international mining and metallurgy congress which will include the Golden Hephaestus industry competition, events dedicated to Metallurgists' Day, and a tour of Astana for delegates.
Jozef Dubinski, Chairman of the International Organising Committee of the World Mining Congress and General Director of the Central Mining Institute, speaking at a 2012 press conference: "Assessing the event from various viewpoints, I would say that everything went excellently - the organisation, the logistics, everything. The fact that a lot of meetings took place in an informal environment as well as during the business programme was valuable. Personally, I'm also thankful for the tour of Astana - it really is a beautiful city."
