Mr Adriano Senvano, OAGS 1st Vice-President

EU-AU Joint Session on Infrastructure for the Minerals Sector Organised by the African Union Commission & the European Commission Brussels,  2015

The first Vice-President and Secretariat of the Organisation of African Geological Surveys (OAGS) represented the organisation at the EU-AU Joint Session on Infrastructure for the Minerals Sector in Brussels on 18 and 19 March 2015.

The aim of the session was to discuss the infrastructure needs of the minerals sector in Africa and to identify ways in which African states can find support in the broader context of existing and planned infrastructure project networks, including transport, ICT, water and energy as well as other types of infrastructure necessary for the sector to play its transformative role.

The OAGS Vice-President deliberated on the infrastructure needs in Africa and the role of Geological Surveys in extending the infrastructure. Mr Senvano explained that as a result of new coal deposits being exploited, projects such as the Macuse railway project, the Nacala Corridor rail project and Beira Port are adequately being equipped and supported by government in order to improve means of transportation. Improving the current infrastructure and building new infrastructure will facilitate easy access to major routes and create faster and better trade opportunities.
