PAM to organise mining forum in Dhofar
The Public Authority for Mining (PAM) will organise a mining forum in Salalah on Monday to invest in the sector and its role in the development of the national economy.
The opening of the forum will be held under the patronage of H E Sayyid Mohammed bin Sultan al Busaidi, Minister of State and Governor of Dhofar.
The forum will discuss a number of themes, namely the mineral wealth law, which includes the main approaches adopted by PAM to develop the mining sector related to increasing the competitiveness of the sector for investment, facilitating and speeding up the procedures for obtaining the mining approvals.
The forum will discuss the promising mining areas, as PAM provides promising mining sites for investors with spaces that allow large investments that can contribute to the diversification policy adopted by the sultanate.
The forum addresses the ‘Oman Mining Strategy’, which aims at achieving four main strategic themes, namely maximising the economic value of the mining sector, managing sustainable development and optimising mineral resources, developing national assets and capabilities to ensure long-term excellence and maximising the contribution of the mining sector to raising the standard of living.
PAM will open the five-day mining exhibition at the Municipality Recreational Center in the Governorate of Dhofar next Monday under the patronage of H E Sheikh Salem bin Uffait al Shanfari, head of Dhofar Municipality.
