The Construction Equipment Association (CEA) has been awarded the contract by UKTI (UK Trade & Investment) to once again run a trade mission and seminar (02 – 06 September 2013) on behalf of UKTI and the British Embassy in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The mission is to showcase the best of UK construction and mining equipment to a Mongolian audience.
Nick Ground, President of the CEA said, “Mongolia is one of the world’s fastest growing economies (ranked 4th). With vast reserves of gold, copper and coal, which are only just beginning to be exploited, the opportunities are huge. Decades of underinvestment in infrastructure and housing mean extensive development is starting to take place. Mongolia is a country on the verge of rapid change – don’t leave your entry into this exciting market too late.”
The seminar will be held on Tuesday 03 September 2013 at the Kempinski Hotel in Ulaanbaatar and gives UK companies a unique opportunity to promote their products to a specially invited audience of Mongolian end users, distributors, government departments, contractors, mine operators and NGO funding bodies.
The seminar is being organised by the British Embassy in Ulaanbaatar and will be opened by the British Ambassador. Following the formal presentations in the morning sessions – one to one meetings will take place later in the afternoon. The event will be concluded with a networking reception. There will be an opportunity to display a few larger items of construction equipment outside the venue and smaller products in the seminar hall. A trade mission will be held during the rest of the week. Visits will be made to buyers and users of construction equipment and plans include a possible visit to the world’s largest copper mine at Oyu Tolgoi. There will also be time for missioners to attend private meetings, building on contacts made at the seminar.
Given the support of the British Ambassador and his team, this seminar will be a high profile event. JCB and Off-Highway Research are already confirmed, The CEA is urging delegates not to miss out on the opportunity to promote your company’s products in this exciting market in one of the world’s fastest growing economy. A UKTI travel grant of £620 will be available to eligible companies. Places on the mission are limited and interest is expected to be high.
Joanna Oliver MBE, Director of Global Programmes at the CEA said, “Mongolia represents an opportunity for British business to engage with an economy that is rapidly ’emerging’. The great wealth of natural resources coupled with ambitious infrastructure and social development plans mean plenty of opportunities in all sectors. Add a willingness to engage with UK business and all the ingredients are in place for successful commerce. Don’t miss out.”
