The envoys of Peru, Brazil, Chile, Guinea, Madagascar, Argentina, South Africa and Tanzania attended the event.

Ling Yueming pointed out in his speech that the global pandemic of COVID-19 epidemic and the world's unprecedented changes in a century have affected each other. The tide of anti-globalization in the epidemic era has slowed down the recovery of the mining industry, and the global mining market is facing unprecedented shocks and challenges. The demand for bulk minerals has shrunk. But in the long run, the status of mining industry as a basic industry has not been shaken, and the basic driving force for mining development is still strong. All countries in the world need to unite to overcome difficulties, open cooperation and seek common development, so as to make the global mining governance system conform to the changes of world politics and economy, meet the practical needs of coping with global challenges, and conform to the historical trend of peaceful development and win-win cooperation. We should continue to expand the areas of mining cooperation, jointly improve and improve the global resource system, and build a global mining community with a shared future. We should speed up the transformation of traditional mining production mode, promote the "green recovery" of global mining industry, and build a beautiful and harmonious earth.

On behalf of the Ministry of Natural Resources China, Ling Yueming put forward three proposals: first, adhere to the improvement of people's livelihood and fulfill social responsibilities. All countries in the world should pay more attention to the important role of mining industry in regional economic development, actively promote the resumption of work and production, develop economy, increase employment, eliminate poverty, improve people's livelihood, build a sharing mechanism between enterprises and the public, and promote the development of mining enterprises, the benefit of people in mining areas and the harmonious relationship between mining and land. Second, adhere to scientific and technological innovation to stimulate the kinetic energy of mining industry. New technologies such as 5G communication, big data, artificial intelligence, Internet of things, cloud computing and other new technologies are integrated with mining industry, creating new momentum for global mining development. China is willing to strengthen the sharing of mining science and technology policies and information with other countries in the world, promote international scientific and technological cooperation and management experience exchange in the mining field, jointly cope with risks and challenges, and seize future development opportunities. Third, adhere to multilateralism and improve global governance. Countries in the world have different resource endowments and mining economy is closely dependent. It is necessary to further strengthen cooperation, open and win-win, oppose any form of trade protectionism, relax access conditions, protect property rights fairly, promote the facilitation of mining investment, and build a global mining industry chain with complementary advantages. It is advocated that the establishment of mining capacity cooperation alliances with extensive participation by countries along the “Belt and Road”. We will further develop mining trade and investment cooperation and interconnection, and establish an open, transparent, inclusive and non-discriminatory industry development ecosystem, promote the liberalization of mineral trade and ensure the stability of the mineral product market.

After the opening ceremony, Zhong Ziran presided over the theme forum, and six guests made speeches on overseas mining investment, international cooperation in mining industry and capital market.
