The 36thIGC is a platform where the global geo-science community will come together to explore opportunities for scientific collaboration, networking, capacity building and showcasing the scientific findings from their country to the world geo-scientific community. It also presents a perfect stage for India to showcase its geological capabilities and present new business opportunities in the mining and metal sectors.
