It believes this partnership will give Australian mining equipment and technology suppliers a better opportunity to showcase their mining technology and services to the Indonesian mining sector.
Austrade Jakarta senior trade commissioner Kym Hewett said the partnership would allow Australia METS and mining companies to engage with targeted buyers from the Indonesian mining industry.
“Austrade is committed to providing Australian suppliers, who are world leaders in mining innovation, with platforms to showcase their expertise,” he said.
“This partnership will enable participating Australian companies to gain greater access to decision makers and procurement personnel from within the Indonesian market.”
The Ozmine 2014 conference, organised by Austrade with the support of Austmine and the Melbourne Mining Club, will run in conjunction with the M&E Indonesia and Ozmine exhibition.
Reed Mining Events director Paul Baker said the partnership and colocation of Ozmine and M&E Indonesia stemmed from the mutual objective of both events to provide the Indonesian mining industry with access to world leading innovations, expertise and operational solutions.
“Providing a colocation creates increased opportunities for Australian businesses to connect with the Indonesian mining sector,” he said.
“This is important because Australian mining sector suppliers are experienced in providing solutions to improve operational efficiency through technology and innovation, which can be adapted to overcome the challenges the industry is facing in Indonesia.
“There is big potential for Australian suppliers to service the Indonesian mining industry, particularly due to the vast coal and mineral reserves Indonesia possesses.
“Therefore, substantial opportunities exist for Australian suppliers who have the experience, technology and operational processes for mining-related applications.”
