The Malagasy Mining Sector is today facing different challenges.
These challenges, which challenge us all, call for profound changes to bring our Sector out of the situation of "resilience" to which it has been reduced for years. The Mining Sector, more than any other sector, is highly exposed to the vagaries of the global economic and financial environment and international markets.
We must work together with all national stakeholders and achieve a shared vision and assumed role of this sector so that it can fully assume the role of development driver of our country.
Everyone will have to find his account. Investors, the State and the people, so that the security of projects already in operation, the acceleration of those in progress and the emergence of newcomers turn into so many viable and sustainable projects to create income and jobs for the Malagasy State and the communities.
Beyond these repercussions, the contribution of the Mining Sector must also reside in the creation of "local expertise" at the level of the workforce and national SMEs with the aim, not only the creation of multiplier effects other sectors, but also the establishment of MADAGASCAR as a country exporting expertise in AFRICA and elsewhere.
This objective can not be achieved beyond a framework that protects investments and the establishment of mutually beneficial partnerships, which are required to attract long-term investors and reassure investors with a particular emphasis on good governance, transparency and performance.
MADAGASCAR must seize these opportunities in time so as not to remain an eternal observer of markets whose unique potential in AFRICA predestines us to become a key player.
