The mining and metallurgy industry, along with the oil and gas sector, is a dominating one in the country’s economy. The mining and metallurgy sector accounts for about 19% of GDP. Its share in the total national exports amounts to 20%.

The concept of the Kazakhstan Mining & Metallurgy Days meets the basic objectives of the Government’s industrial and innovation policies aimed to increase competitive exports and make high added-value products, implement innovative designs and provide high-quality training of industry personnel who are supposed to bring Kazakhstan’s mining and metallurgy industry to prominence.

Government Delegations from Belarus, China, Turkey, and Ukraine have arrived in Astana to take part in the Kazakhstan Mining & Metallurgy Days.

In 2012, the АММ Forum covers a full range of production processes, from geologic exploration, ore production, concentration and processing to manufacture of finished products. The AMM 2012 Congress sessions are thematically subdivided into Geology Session, Mining Session, and Metallurgy Session. Speeches are planned by over 20 speakers from Kazakhstan, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, Russia, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. An exhibition held as part of the Forum is aimed to support domestic manufacturers of goods and services as well as Kazakhstan’s research centres.

The AMM 2012 Congress is attended by about 1,400 delegates from 23 countries: Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Uzbekistan.

The AMM 2012 exposition displays 60 companies from 7 countries. For the first time ever, Ukraine’s mining, metallurgy, and machine-building sectors will be represented on a large scale with a National Stand formed at the exhibition. Traditionally, the exhibition’s structure is organised thematically into sections as follows: Industry, Gold, Services, Innovations, Education, and Jubilee. The exhibition is open for visiting on 4 and 5 July.

Another event within the framework of the Kazakhstan Mining & Metallurgy Days is the Third Congress of Mining & Metallurgy Industry Workers organised by the National Association of Mining and Metallurgical Enterprises (AGMP) in partnership with the Trade Union of Mining and Metallurgy Industry Workers. The Congress brings together 370 delegates, including CEOs of mining and metallurgical companies, trade unions of mining, metallurgy, and coal industry workers, government agencies, development institutions, and deputies of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The Congress will be attended by Serik Akhmetov, First Vice Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The Congress will be moderated by Nikolai Radostovets, Executive Director, AGMP.

The Congress of Mining & Metallurgy Industry Workers is supposed to discuss issues of utmost relevance for the development of Kazakhstan’s mining and metallurgy sector, such as production upgrading and increasing Kazakhstan content, interaction between business and government authorities, improvement of legislation, increasing control over occupational safety and development of social partnership, creating new jobs and human resources for the industry. Special attention will be given to discussing the prospects of adopting the Mining Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The discussions will be summed up in a Congress resolution.

The Innovations for Mining & Metallurgy and Human Resources for Mining & Metallurgy Roundtables will take place in two halls at the same time. The Innovations for Mining & Metallurgy Roundtable will be moderated by Aset Isekeshev, Minister of Industry and New Technologies of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The key task of the Roundtable is to promote domestic innovative research developments. The roundtable discussions will result in signing mutual cooperation memos between research centres and domestic enterprises.

The Human Resources for Mining & Metallurgy Roundtable will be moderated by Albert Rau, First Vice Minister of Industry and New Technologies of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Speakers include experts from different countries: Russia, Kazakhstan, the United Kingdom, and Kyrgyzstan. The Human Resources for Mining & Metallurgy Roundtable is aimed to demonstrate an integral system and provide recommendations for respective working groups contributing to the development of elements of the National Qualifications System of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The Sector HR Council for Mining & Metallurgy set up at the previous AMM Congress will continue operating. A resolution with recommendations for a single approach and regular agreement of approaches to the structure of the National Qualifications System and methods to develop professional standards worked out by the Sector HR Council for Mining & Metallurgy will be submitted to Kazakhstan’s various ministries.

The unique feature of the Kazakhstan Mining & Metallurgy Days is rallying the industry community around one large-scale event which will undoubtedly contribute to further development of Kazakhstan’s mining and metallurgy sector and economy on the whole.
