Join us for a day of progressive dialogue on mineral development in Uganda. MADI has organised a national stakeholder’s engagement workshop on minerals value addition premised on its Value Proposition of “creating an open and constructive environment to support the economic, social and environmental structural transformation of Africa’s mineral sector. The workshop will be held on Thursday, August 24, 2023 in Kampala, Uganda under the theme “Transforming Uganda’s Economy through Minerals Value Addition”. 

The workshop is focused on creating awareness on the potential of the minerals value chain/addition in achieving Uganda’s economic development agenda.
