The conference included more than 200 participants from 20 countries and covered best practices in mining finance, mining regulations, managing mineral resources and reserves, engaging stakeholders for success, and managing mining project execution. CLDP also organized a consultation between the ICMM and Columbia University’s Center on Sustainable Investment to discuss strategic goals for Kosovo’s budding mining industry and effective strategies to attract foreign investment. On May 5, the delegation attended meetings organized by CLDP in Washington with the Department of State and several offices of the Department of Interior.
