And of course we will be hearing how Port Moresby itself is evolving – at a rapid pace – with the APEC summit just around the corner.Or is Port Moresby headed towards becoming a “mini Manila” one of the least livable cities on Earth? We will also be hearing from experts that rate such cities from good to worse – and how this affects investment and confidence.

About METS in Latin America

One of Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ)’s core functions is to help Queensland companies grow their export business, with a strong focus on industries where Queensland has traditional and emerging strengths.

Latin America’s abundant natural resources present a wealth of opportunities for METS companies – Chile and Peru in particular

Chile’s mining industry generates high demand for imports, and in 2016, the global METS industry reported a total of US$4.2 billion in exports to Chile. New investment in Chile over the next 10 years

is estimated at US$80 billion. The most important projects are BHP Billiton’s expansion of its Spence mine, and the ramp up of Codelco’s Chuquicamata underground mine.

Global METS investment in Peru, which is the second largest producer of both copper and silver, the sixth largest global producer of gold and third largest recipient of foreign investment in mining projects throughout Latin America, is expected to reach US$56 billion by 2020.

SCC is one of the largest integrated copper producers in the world, producing copper, molybdenum, zinc, lead, coal and silver.

Since 1996, their common shares have been listed on both the New York Stock Exchange and the Lima Stock Exchange. Their operations in Toquepala consist of an open-pit mine and a concentrator. Southern Copper also refines copper at the ESDE plant through a leaching process. Toquepala is located in the south of Peru, around 870 km from Lima. The ESDE plant has a capacity of 56,000 tn per year of grade A copper cathodes.

The leaching operation has a capacity of approximately 200 million pounds of copper per year.

Codelco – El Teniente

Codelco is the world’s main copper producer, controlling around 10% of the global reserves of this metal. The name Codelco represents the Corporación Nacional del Cobre de Chile, an autonomous company owned by the Chilean State whose main business is the exploration, development and exploitation of copper mineral resources and byproducts, their processing to refined copper and commercialization.
