This conference focuses on the key questions that the industry needs to understand such as:

- Will the current fall in mining costs continue, and if so for how long?

- How will the lack of imminent completed projects and a potential scarcity of supply impact medium and long term prices?

- With China accounting for 50% of global demand, how will the projected slow down in the Chinese economy impact consumption?

- What will happen to the US market as Trump's policies start to take place?

- Is the current and future copper blister surplus a good or bad thing?

- What are the future new markets and their growth and usage potential?

- With an audience of leading CEO's of mining companies, smelters, purchasers and consumers, it is recognised as the one event that anybody in the copper industry needs to attend.
