Mali Promotion: Oil exploration in Mali and attracting investors 

Also presenting its oil industry opportunities at Africa Oil Week is Mali, which was ranked one of the most dynamic countries in the region in terms of reforms by the World Bank's “Doing Business” report. Its Investment Promotion Agency, which won the AIM "Investment Award" for its incentive-strengthening reforms, is taking advantage of these achievements to enter into constructive dialogue with the business world. Mr. Hamed Ag Mohamed, Director-General of the Authority for the Promotion of Oil Research (AUREP) will be presenting Mali’s five oil-rich basins, divided into 28 blocks, of which 13 are still available, along with the investment framework in areas such as taxation and its Public-Private Partnership policy. The Mali Promotion also takes place on Wednesday 25th, from 10.45 to 11.45 am.

This session is a must-attend for anyone looking to the country's promising oil landscape.
