The study was subsequently undertaken in 1994 by ECA and UNIDO with the collaboration of Mintek of South Africa. A major recommendation of the study was that a meeting should be held between the core countries, comprising copper producers and fabricators, and the significant African consumers, to discuss the findings of the report. The first Regional Conference of African Ministers Responsible for the Development and Utilization of Minerals and Energy Resources, held in Ghana, in 1995 noted the recommendation and urged that the meeting be held as soon as possible.
