By advocating for pragmatic changes to enable better business environments to allow Western companies to compete successfully in heavily monopolised markets.


The CMIA is committed to enabling resilient, diversified, secure, and responsible critical minerals supply chains.

Key focus areas:

  • Bolstering security of supply

  • Driving supply chain diversification and enabling integration 

  • Advocating for enabling business environments across the Minerals Security Partnership member nations 

  • Developing new finance models for exploration and high-risk strategic critical minerals projects

A Voice for Change

Critical minerals supply chains rely on extraction, processing and refining of raw materials. However, there are structural challenges facing the industry.


Geopolitical tensions and red tape are creating challenges for many downstream users to source responsible critical minerals. The CMIA highlights these challenges and advocates for change on behalf of the industry. 

The CMIA engages with various stakeholders to drive collaboration and problem-solving, focusing on pragmatic solutions.
