THE CONFERENCE CALLER: With just one week to go, the countdown is on until the 2015 Australian Uranium Conference officially gets underway at the Hyatt Regency, Perth.
The conference will kick off next Wednesday with the Western Australia Minister for Mines & Petroleum Bill Marmion delivering the opening address.
A solid program on Day one will feature analyst updates on the uranium market and its participants, as well as presentations from high profile uranium company CEOs including Vimy Resources managing director, Mike Young and keynote speaker Adam Christopher from Tradetech.
Delegates are encouraged to return on Day two for keynote speaker Daniel Zavattiero from the Minerals Council of Australia as he discusses China’s plans to quadruple its nuclear energy output by 2020 as a key part of its carbon emission reduction plans.
If China does reach its 2020 nuclear energy goal, it would require approximately 8,000 tonnes of uranium a year – with Australia being the obvious ‘natural supplier’ to China.
Also on Day two Karen Andrews, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Industry and Science will deliver the Federal Government’s Address.
