Mining Indaba Will See over 7500 Delegates in Attendance

Mining Indaba 2013The Mining Indaba, over the past 19 years and particularly over the past five years, has proven to be a boost for Cape Town’s economy and business owners operating in the Mother City, mayor Patricia De Lille said yesterday in her welcoming speech.

“In the past five years, R336 million was injected in the city’s economy – creating over 3000 direct and indirect jobs, while stimulating and sustaining local businesses,” she explained. De Lille added that recipients included hotels, retailers, and other enterprises – from large companies to medium-size ventures such as B&Bs and tour operators.

Some 20.000 rooms across 40 hotels and guest houses have been booked this year to accommodate some 7500 delegates from 100 countries in total. Some 57% of the delegates this year are from Africa. The other delegates are from Asia (5%), Australia (12%), Europe (18%), North Africa (8%), and South America (0.3%).
