Mineral activities are formed by a wide range of mineral exploration, excavation, enrichment, transportation and sales. The contribution of mineral activities for the nations’ wealth and the sustainable development is more and more globally important. To put a puzzle into that entire picture of management in mineral activities, the International Conference on Economic Management in Mineral Activities EMMA is organized at Hanoi University of Mining and Geology the fifth time in 2020, expecting to attract international academicians from many countries. During EMMA conferences which is first held from 2013 we have had good opportunities to connect distinguished guests and participants from Australia, Brazil, Germany, India, Laos, Myanmar, Peru, Russia, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United States.

In 2020 the conference is coming once again on October 15th and 16th. This is also the year which the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration - University of Mining and Geology celebrates its jubilee of 20 years of establishment and development.
