London, United Kingdom–(Newsfile Corp. – November 20, 2023) – On the 27th of November, Resourcing Tomorrow will be holding its first Critical Minerals Ministerial Roundtable and Reception in London, in conjunction with the Critical Minerals Association and hosted by the UK All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPG).
Government delegations from Australia, Armenia, Canada, Chad, Nigeria, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Kyrgyz Republic, the Czech Republic, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States have confirmed their attendance.
The world is at a key juncture in the transition to greener energy and each resource-rich country is under unique pressure to attract lasting, meaningful investment into the development of their respective Critical Mineral resources.
Robust Critical Minerals policy is key in ensuring a stable landscape for investors, but also one that benefits the local population and country as a whole.
The Resourcing Tomorrow Conference taking place from the 28th to the 30th of November recognises this importance and is working with governments who are featured on the Conference Programme and will be delivering Ministerial Keynotes.
We are delighted to welcome Geoffrey Pyatt, Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Energy Resources, United States Government.
"The US Inflation Reduction Act is game changer, providing US$783 billion of investment, much of it will flow into investments into not just US based mining projects, but mining projects with countries aligned with Western thinking. At least 40% of critical minerals in US-made EV batteries must come US miners or recycling plants, or mines in countries with free trade deals with the US," said Andrew Thake, Divisional Director at Resourcing Tomorrow.
Other Ministers scheduled to speak at the event include:
Nusrat Ghani, Minister of State at the Department for Business and Trade, United Kingdom
H.E. Bandar Al Khorayef, Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources, Saudi Arabia

New York City Comptroller Brad Lander told Reuters on Tuesday that Tesla's board of directors should sanction CEO Elon Musk if he does not apologize for endorsing an antisemitic comment on his social media platform X. Lander oversees about $946 million in Tesla shares for New York City public retirement funds. Lander's remarks make him the latest Tesla shareholder to call on the EV maker to rein in Musk.

Argentina’s right-wing president-elect gave the first indications Monday of how he plans to start shaking up South America’s second-largest economy: with a slew of privatizations. Populist Javier Milei, a libertarian economist and self-described “anarcho-capitalist,” won a presidential runoff election on Sunday with 55.7% of the vote. “Everything that can be in the hands of the private sector will be in the hands of the private sector,” Milei told Bueno Aires station Radio Mitre.
Users of Venmo, Cash App and other payment apps will get a tax reprieve this year. The IRS announced Tuesday it will delay implementing new reporting requirements that were to take effect for the upcoming tax filing season. Originally, app users who made $600 or more selling goods and services would have been required to report those transactions to the IRS, a new threshold required by the American Rescue Plan passed in March 2021.
Facing a wave of new rules and encouraged by a sympathetic judiciary, U.S. financial firms and their trade groups are growing bolder about fighting Democratic President Joe Biden's regulators in court. Biden's regulatory appointees were given a mandate to take on perceived corporate profiteering, bolster rules relaxed by the Republican former President Donald Trump's administration, and address Democratic priorities such as income inequality and climate change. Multiple industry executives said firms are more willing to litigate than in the past because the regulations are frequently ill-conceived and rushed, and will ultimately hurt consumers, investors and the economy.

The result of politicians in Washington racking up a $33.7 trillion federal debt? It now takes over a fifth of all government revenues just to pay the interest.
As the world's most powerful oil producers ponder further supply cuts, Russia has little incentive for a radical change as its energy revenue is strong, oil prices are higher than its forecasts and its budget deficit is narrowing. Ministers from OPEC+, which groups the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and allies led by Russia, meet on Sunday in Vienna. OPEC+ is set to consider whether to make additional oil supply cuts, three OPEC+ sources told Reuters with prices down by 16% since late September as crude output in the U.S., the world's top producer, held at record highs, while the market was concerned about demand growth, especially from China, the No. 1 importer of oil.
President-elect Javier Milei faces runaway inflation and empty coffers after decades of economic mismanagement.
German industrial projects in jeopardy after a court ruling wiped 60 billion euros from the federal budget include chip factories, decarbonised steel production, and expanding the battery supply chain, two government sources said on Monday. The ruling last week found the government's move to transfer unused pandemic funds toward climate initiatives and industry support in a so-called Climate and Transformation Fund (KTF) was illegal. In the steel industry, businesses planned to invest 6 billion euros ($6.54 billion) in decarbonised steel production, directly and indirectly employing around 20,000 people.
Milton Friedman was not renowned for being soft and cuddly. The father of monetarist economics inspired tough central bank crackdowns on inflation that triggered recessions and provided the intellectual ballast for Margaret Thatcher, the Iron Lady.
Austan Goolsbee, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, suggested Monday that the economy appears to be on what he calls the “golden path,” another term for what economists call a “soft landing,” in which the Fed would curb inflation without causing a deep recession. “Any time we’ve had a serious cut to the inflation rate, it’s come with a major recession," Goolsbee said in an interview with The Associated Press. Goolsbee declined to comment on the likely future path for the Fed's key short-term interest rate.
