EU “emphasises” the importance of access to raw materials

The European Minerals Day partners welcome the recently ­issued EU Communication on “Tackling the challenges in commodity markets and on raw materials” as well as the emphasis which it places on the importance of raw materials. 70 % of EU manufacturing production depend on mined substances. This applies for example to the construction, chemicals, automotive, aerospace and machinery sectors, which provide a total added value of 1324 billion € and 30 million jobs. The European Minerals Day from 13.-15.05.2011 is coordinated at European level by IMA-Europe, the European Industrial Minerals Association, UEPG, the European Aggregates Association, and CEMBUREAU, the European Cement Association. Coordination at country level is ensured by national trade associations.
