Thank you to all who attended the distinguished Asia Tin Week 2023, which took place in the vibrant city of Chengdu, Sichuan province, China from the 8th – 10th November 2023.

Our dynamic world, with its compelling trends and challenges, set the stage for a fascinating exploration into the future of tin, a cornerstone metal. These transformations provided an opportunity to chart new pathways and mould a future characterized by balance, sustainability, and prosperity.

  • What could the mining suspension in Myanmar’s Wa State mean for the global tin industry?
  • How might the Indonesian government’s agenda for building a downstream tin industry progress?
  • Are Peru, Bolivia, and Africa able to seize the opportunity to bridge the supply gap in tin mining and production?
  • Could the flourishing advancements in automotive electronics, AI, 5G, and other fields spur a renaissance for tin, particularly within the booming photovoltaic industry?

These intriguing topics were the focus of Asia Tin Week 2023. The conference gathered the best minds in the industry – influential tin miners, smelters, traders, and end-user enterprises. Industry experts delivered insightful analysis on a spectrum of issues from macroeconomics, supply, consumption, inventory to sustainable development. Additionally, analysts from the International Tin Association discussed the latest trends and prospects.
