  • Description

    The creation of a strong Association of Iron Ore Exporting Countries, modelled on the successful Organisation of Oil Exporting Countries, took an important step forward on Wednesday (14 May).

    In New Delhi, India, Mauritania became the first country to formally sign the agreement hammered out by 11 iron ore-exporting nations in Geneva in April.

    The final act of the Geneva conference, containing the text of the agreement, was signed by algeria, Australia, Brazil, Chile, India, Mauritania, Peru, Sierra Leone, Sweden, Tunisia and Venezuela.

    The agreement will come into force 30 days after it has been formally signed in New Delhi by seven countries.

    The Association aims to get maximum prices for the iron ore exported by member nations.

    Ahmedou Duld Tolba, the Mauritanian Ambassador to Iraq signed the agreement on behalf of his country.

    Preparatory work has already begun for the first session of the Council of Ministers of the proposed association.
