The Competence Centre: Mineral Resources (CC:MR), based in Johannesburg, aims to support the sustainable raw materials policy and supply demanded by the German government.

By focusing on the region of southern Africa, in particular South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the DRC, these markets should contribute to securing and diversifying supplies. 

Our tasks include among others:

  • Expansion of our own database
  • Creation of market transparency (collection, evaluation, communication)
  • Communication and cooperation platform (network, exchange, competent partner)
  • Services (consulting, delegations, studies, development cooperation projects etc.)
  • Promotion of German technologies in the market (events, activities, long-term contacts)
