LONDON, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Oil & Gas IQ recently announced that the Global Local Content Summit 2012 will take place in London, United Kingdom on the 24th - 27th September, 2012. Now in its 8th consecutive year, the congress is the largest and most prestigious annual gathering of senior local content decision makers from across the globe.
"The recent steady high oil price has driven fresh exploration in the developing world. But will this FDI (foreign direct investment) lead to equitable growth? Local Content is seen as the solution for transforming developing nations into growth economies." says Luke Treacy, event director for the 8th Annual Global Local Content Summit.
"What can the new frontier states of Mozambique, Uganda, Tanzania, Liberia and Ghana learn from their experiences of the more mature petroleum industries of Nigeria, Brazil, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Angola and Australia who may (or may not be) on the right track?", continues Tracy.
This year's Global Local Content Summit has been specifically designed to address the issues raised. Encompassing a vast expanse of themes and regions, the Summit explores new frontiers in African policy development, updates from the MENA region and the impact of the Arab Spring as well as insights from local content leaders from Latin America.
