Arandis to host Investment Conference and Uranium Festival
The Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Tjekero Tweya last week launched the Arandis Investment Conference and Uranium Festival, which will take place on 10 November.
The conference will focus on investment opportunities in the town, presenting Arandis as a preferred logistics hub while looking at potential opportunities in uranium mining and exploring renewable energy and IT solutions.
The theme of the this year’s investment conference and festival is ‘The Hot Spot for Renewable Energy and IT Solutions’.
Speaking at the launch, Tweya said the theme of this year’s conference is perfectly reflected in Arandis’s potential in terms of renewable energy and ICT solutions.
“The hot spot for renewable energy and IT solutions interrogates the key purpose for this conference, which is to focus on what Arandis can offer in terms of becoming a centre for renewable energy and ICT industries, because the economy of Arandis is influenced by the activities of the surrounding uranium mines that are dependent on energy and ICT services, hence this year’s festival will offer the networking for potential investors in these industries and an opportunity to showcase their products,” Tweya said.
