The Africa Union Commission (AUC) and the African Minerals Development Center held a consultation recently with members of the private sector regarding the Africa Mining Vision (AMV) initiative. 

The meeting was held under the theme of “Leveraging the Role of Chambers of Mines and Mining Association in the implementation of the Africa Mining Vision.”

The main goal of the two-day meeting was to have a straightforward discussion to best decide how to how the AMV should be implemented.

The Chambers of Mines' primary objective is to protect the interests of its members, but their roles have evolved to include working closely with governments to address difficulties. These difficulties include the creation of jobs and the alleviation of poverty. The Chambers of Mines also tries to attract investments.

The AMV puts an emphasis on the role played by the mineral resource sector when it comes to the development of milestones in African countries. It also targets mining companies, which include oil and gas companies, the Chambers of Mines and other mineral sectors. 

The AMV was founded on principles like core values, policies and strategic plans of extractive-sector companies.
