Chairman’s Welcome 

On behalf of the Australian Mining Association and the Organising Committee, I would like to formally invite you to attend the first Asia Pacific Resources Conference (APRC) 2014 in Brisbane in November 2014. By hosting the first Asia Pacific Resources Conference we aim to become an important bridge between China and Australia, and to create a forum for discussing relevant topics concerning divergent aspects of the whole value chain of the resources industry. Long term, the Australian Mining Association will contribute by providing forums involving all countries interested in resources and to encouraging efficient allocation of resources through the provision of, and encouraging, dialogues between countries to promote both trade and investment in resources, with closer buyer and seller co-operation. 

The Conference will be held at Pullman Brisbane King George Square on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th November 2014, the week following the G20 Leaders Summit in Brisbane. The theme for the conference is Green Mining and Chinese Investments. To explore this theme, program topics will include:

  • Policies & green energy solutions
  • Investments & trends
  • Finance in the resources industry
  • Investment services
  • Legal
  • Accounting
  • Community
  • Environment
  • Contract mining
  • Investment lessons & recommendations
  • Resource classification

Brisbane, Australia’s New World City, provides a beautiful location for APRC 2014 with its picturesque winding river, attractive modern buildings, a thriving retail centre, excellent restaurants and most importantly – year-round pleasant weather. Brisbane is a diverse city with one of the fastest growing economies in Australia. It is a city of alluring character: from its distinctive architecture (the charming ‘Queenslanders’ and worker’s cottages that line inner-suburban streets) to its swimming beach right in the middle of the CBD.

I look forward to welcoming you to Brisbane.

George Edwards
Chairman of the Australian Mining Association
