The government has identified some key focus areas in the mining sector to increase the domestic output of minerals and enhance operational efficiency. These priority actions include upscaling mineral exploration, deploying advanced technologies for efficient mining, introducing structural reforms in auctions, and increasing private sector participation. As the country plans to open up after the Covid-19 induced lockdown, mining is expected to be one of the key sectors that can help improve the economy and provide employment opportunities. In view of this, Indian Infrastructure magazine is conducting a series of three webinars on the Future of Mining Sector in India.
The mission of this series is to enable the exchange of information and knowledge to identify the measures required to increase coal production and reduce coal imports, analyse the existing challenges and reforms required to make auctions more transparent and efficient as well as to discuss the innovative technologies and best practices that help enhance output.
The webinar will give an opportunity to hear from key stakeholders in times when travel has become almost impossible and it is uncertain when it may open up. We hope that the webinar/video interaction will provide a platform for a very useful exchange of information and ideas.
Each video interaction/webinar will be a 70-75 minute session covering the following topics:
