GIIF has identified ready-to-go opportunities where infrastructure can be bundled with industrial investment in mineral processing so that the offtake capacity of the industries can pay for enhanced infrastructure projects in power, railways, roads, and port services.
A pillar in this strategy is VALCO, linked to free-zone industrial estates for alumina refining, and higher value added aluminium products and other allied products and services.
The project will link the mining of bauxite, construction, petrochemicals, salt, natural gas, fertilizer and agro-business, with infrastructure investments. GIIF is therefore presenting investment packages targeted at industrial initiatives in salt, bauxite, limestone, iron ore, etc.
While the GIDI project is broad in scope, GIIF’s immediate focus is on three available value-added investment opportunities: VALCO reactivation and expansion, value-added industrial minerals processing, and industrial salt extraction and processing.
