The African Union Commission and the African Minerals Development Centre (AMDC) on Monday announced the launch of a key compact between State and private sector leaders around the implementation of the Africa Mining Vision (AMV). The compact outlines commitments from mining companies and host states to support the realisation of the AMV, the continent’s own response to tackling the paradox of great mineral wealth existing side by side with pervasive poverty, which was formally adopted by African heads of state in 2009.
