Exponor: Antofagasta May 2019

Planning is underway

Please note that planning is currently underway for this trade mission. The information provided below is indicative only and the location and dates may be subject to change pending feedback from expressions of interest.

Trade Victoria invites expressions of interest to participate in a mining equipment, technology and services (METS) trade mission to Chile, based around the Exponor Conference held in Antofagasta.

Why should you attend?

Chile is a major global producer of copper, gold, lithium, rhenium, iodine and many other commodities.

It also faces particular challenges, including the need to increase its efficiency to be globally competitive, as well as addressing environmental and social license issues. This provides opportunities for Victorian METS to provide specialised goods and services to this important market.

Chile, with its strong political and economic stability, also provides an excellent base to access the sizeable opportunities in neighbouring countries such as Peru and Ecuador.

The mission will begin at the Exponor Conference in Antofagasta and include business matching and networking opportunities. This will be followed by visits to mine sites to build greater understanding of the needs and opportunities in the market, and to introduce participants to key stakeholders.

Key dates

Mission dates: 27 to 30 May 2019
Location: Antofagasta, Chile
