5th Yaman Philippines conference
Half a decade ago, Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association (PMSEA), the country’s forerunner in the promotion of responsible mining created a platform for students taking up programs in the field of geology, mining, metallurgical engineering and other related sciences to experience the industry early in their student life. That platform was made possible by the convergence of student leaders from Adamson University, Mapúa University, and the University of the Philippines. These universities would later be joined by Saint Louis University – Baguio. We started as PMSEA Student Congress, then National Minerals Industry Student Association (NAMINA), then what is now the Philippine Youth Association for Responsible Mining and Natural Resources (YAMAN PH). Through this platform, came into fruition the YAMAN PH Congress, always in conjunction with the Annual Mine Safety and Environment Conference (ANMSEC) of PMSEA in Baguio City every third week of November. Students from across the country are invited to take part in this week-long activity. The highest participation with around 800 students was recorded in 2016. Majority of which came from Visayas and Mindanao. As of today, the organization has also planted more than 2,000 trees in Baguio City, and Pangasinan through Northern Cement Corporation. Through PMSEA and its generous partners and sponsors, the students are given the opportunity to experience responsible mining in Baguio City where it is believed to be the cradle of responsible mining in the country. With their vision as a youth organization, they aspire to lead the positive transformation of society’s understanding of responsible mining and conserving natural resources by influencing the youth to create and be socially proactive stewards of the environment for the projection, promotion, and protection of the country’s minerals industry and natural resources. Through these short years, what PMSEA and YAMAN PH had created is a transformative space for learning and training ground for the future of one of the country’s needed industries.

Testimonials from past participants Feedback from past attendees have consistently highlighted both the high quality of the speakers and the attendees.

Constance Tan, Principal Consultant, Alvito Capital Holding (Singapore) opined that ‘When I speak to other delegates here, they agree that it has been a useful forum for them to ask questions and meet like-minded people in the same industry over meals and networking drinks. Overall Mining Investment Asia is a formal yet informal event with plenty of interaction for future collaboration’. Charmaine Olea Capili, Executive Director, Philippine Nickel Mining Association said that ‘It is a big leap for us coming here as an Association as it is the first we are coming out here in South East Asia.

Dato Aminudin Hashim, CEO of Menteri Besar Inc, a government body tasked to drive growth in the Malaysian state of Perak, highlighted that ‘Mining Investment Asia is a great event.

1st Philippine Natural Resources Development Forum
The European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) is organizing the 1st Philippine Natural Resources Development Forum on April 26, 2019 at Marriott Hotel Manila with the theme “Harnessing Natural Resources for inclusiveness and Sustainable Development”.The mining industry in the Philippines is a major economic activity but remains operating below potential. There is a considerable anti-mining sentiment in the country especially at the subnational levels where environmental impact and displacement of indigenous peoples caused by mining operations have been the focus of much debate. Small-scale mining is also contentious, due to poor regulations and overlapping policies between national and local government. The ECCP believes that the contribution to national development and share value can be further enhanced through better regulatory and enabling policies, best practices in value sharing, environment-friendly technologies and socially responsible investments.The 1st Philippine Natural Resources Development Forum intends to convene decision makers and other key stakeholders from the Mining (Metallic and Non-metallic subsectors) as well as Upstream Oil & Gas, Coal sub sectors to discuss challenges, opportunities, policy reforms and best practices in harnessing the country’s natural resources and their contribution to sustainable development.Visit https://www.eccp.com/events/?id=499 for more information.
