Technical support to the governments of metal resource-producing countries
Utilizing its experience and technical know-how on mine pollution control developed over the years, JOGMEC has been providing information and technical support to metal resource-producing countries in recent years through overseas seminars on mine pollution control, dispatching of advisors, etc., thereby contributing to environment-friendly and sustainable development of mining and strengthening relationships with resource-producing countries.
Strengthening relationships with metal resource-producing countries
JOGMEC signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Peru in December 2008 concerning the dispatching of an expert on preventive policy for mine pollution. In 2013, JOGMEC newly signed MOUs in the field of mine pollution control with countries such as Cambodia and Laos. Thus, JOGMECʼs activities to support mine pollution control are steadily spreading around the world.

At the request of the Peruvian government, which highly evaluates JOGMECʼs efforts in mine pollution control projects, JOGMEC signed an MOU on the dispatch of advisors on mine environment policies in 2008 and has been dispatching experts on mine environment to Peru since 2009.
In addition, JOGMEC has been providing technical support for the engineers of the Ministry of Energy and Mines since 2012, by On-the-Job Training on mine pollution prevention works at abandoned mine sites.
Holding seminars and other programs
To strengthen the cooperative relationships with metal resource-producing countries, JOGMEC have provided various technical support such as holding seminars on mine pollution control and hosting observation teams and trainees in Japan.
