About the conference
Strong growth trends and growing economic clout have seen Latin America become the rising star of the international economy in the last decade and the resources sector has played a key role in that emergence. Australian industry participants have played their part in that growth and the Australian government is now using the linkages built in resources to enhance its relations with the nations and economies of Latin America.
The Latin America Down Under (LADU) Conference was created to further these relations and highlight the vast, untapped potential for Australian miners and explorers in a region.
Following the format of its highly successful African counterpart, Latin America Downunder provides a rare opportunity for Australian government, Latin American mining ministers, junior exploration and resource companies, suppliers, service providers, educational bodies, media and investors to network and share their stories and experiences. LADU has grown into the premier forum for Australian-Latin American relations, showcasing the very best of this growing relationship.
