SRK Presentation

Several Key Concepts Technically Supporting China's Enterprise Outbound Investment

Date and Time: Thursday 22 September, 3:30pm - 4:00pm


Investing internationally in the resource sector, a market renowned for its cyclicity, requires sound investment and operational decisions based on transparent, consistent and balanced views of a projects technical confidence and development status, including social, environmental and governance factors.

Whilst assessing and managing risks at home may be very familiar, working away from home where cultures, regulations, levels of assessment and cost structures are different, can be a very different ball game.

This presentation will discuss some of the key technical challenges Chinese companies and investors need to consider when investing internationally in resource projects and highlights the independent, experienced organisations available internationally to provide appropriate objective and balanced advice to outbound investors.
