Minerals Forum Partners with McKinsey for Global Thought Leadership on Minerals
Riyadh-- The Future Minerals Forum (FMF) announced that it has mutually agreed with the international consultancy McKinsey and Co. to be the FMF Knowledge Partners.
The partnership between FMF and McKinsey and Co. aims to position the Forum as a thought leader on minerals and metals and a convenor of action-focused conversations. The two-year Knowledge Partnership will run from March 2023 to February 2025 and complement current and future content partnerships established by FMF with globally recognized institutes and other organizations.
“The time and place is here to start a global conversation about the future minerals and turn these insights into action,” said Khalid Al Mudaifer, Vice-Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources for Mining Affairs.
He added, “We are hopeful joining forces with McKinsey will enable the Future Minerals Forum to remain at the forefront of global developments on minerals and bring insights into finding solutions on pressing issues such as integrated mineral value chains, sustainability, social benefits and application of new technology.”
The partnership announcement was made following the second edition of the Future Minerals Forum held last month between January 10-12 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A Ministerial Roundtable on January 10th brought senior government officials from 63 countries and 21 international organizations. The conference on the 11th and 12th convened more than 250 speakers and 9,000 in-person delegates, including CEOs of the world’s largest mining companies, international investors, technology companies, academia and civil society.
