Patronage and opening speech by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action

We are very pleased to confirm that Parliamentary State Secretary Michael Kellner will open this year's event. We thank him for his trust and support.

Furthermore, the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Climate Action (BMWK) will assume the patronage of the MiningForum again in 2022. The Ministry’s engagement highlights the importance of an integrated approach to a more sustainable mining sector for the upcoming challenges in the transition of our economy.

With numerous panels and discussions about the various ways to extract those minerals critical for the transition of the energy and mobility sector, the MiningForum 2022 is the perfect opportunity for driving the necessary public discourse including the mining sector, science, and politics. Together we can find the best solutions for a more sustainable future.
