sharing in governance of extractive industries
On December 11, the 2016 AMLA Workshop commenced at the Law Faculty of the University of Ghana, bringing 42 law students from 15 countries across the five regions of Africa to study key topics related to the mining sector in general, and specifically how the AMLA platform is populated.
The program opened with a warm welcome from the Provost of the university, Professor Samuel Agyei-Mensah, followed by an eloquent keynote address from Dr. Joyce Aryee, Ghana’s former Minister of both Education and Information and the first female CEO of the Ghana Chamber of Mines. Students will attend a demanding schedule of presentations and practical exercises throughout the week, concluding on December 21 with a closing keynote address by H.E. Fatima Haram Acyl, Commissioner for Trade and Industry at the African Union Commission.
Check back throughout the week for more highlights on the 2016 AMLA workshop.
