President Anthony M. Penaso is attending a short course on Minerals Policy and Economics at the University of Western Australia. He is one of the chosen fellows of the International Mining for Development Center of the University of Western Australia.
Minerals Policy and Economics is supported by the Australian government through a Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Initiative. The short course provides a unique opportunity for professionals from government, civil society and academic institutions to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts of minerals policy that informs regulatory frameworks and economics in the resource sector.
The Program will provide participants with: an overview of mineral regulation, including international and domestic laws and structures; an enhanced understanding of minerals policy as it informs mining law and mineral economics; deeper knowledge of mineral economics and mineral economies; a clear understanding of the drivers of public and private sector economic returns across the minerals sector. The four weeks course is funded by the Australian government-AusAid.
The said training is timely because CSU is also involved in Mineral and Mining researches. This is also a venue and an opportunity for CSU to establish linkages and collaboration with all the other fellows coming from different countries. And better chances of engagement and collaboration with the University of Western Australia as well as with the Australian government.
