    20 years of cooperation between KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. and China Minmetals Corporation was celebrated in Beijing.

    The cooperation between KGHM and Minmetals has been going on for 20 years, and it can be an example for other Polish and Chinese companies. We are hoping that large Polish enterprises representing various industries will find as good partner and experience as fruitful cooperation as KGHM with China Minmetals - said Piotr Gillert, Charge d'Affaires of the Republic of Poland in his speech during the ceremony on November 24.

    Radosław Domagalski, president of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. and Guo Wenqing, chairman of the China Minmetals Corporation and the China Metallurgical Group Corporation, summed up their cooperation so far and discussed on the prospects of its further development. The cooperation of both companies began in 1997 with the signing of the first long-term contract.

    By the end of 2016, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has sold nearly 881 thousand tons of copper cathodes worth USD 5 billion to China Minmetals Corporation. In June 2016, during the visit to Poland of the President of the People`s Republic of China Mr. Xi Jinping, KGHM and China Minmetals, signed another long-term contract for 2017-2021. KGHM Polska Miedź has been one of the largest Polish exporters to China for many years.

    In recognition of long-term and fruitful cooperation, during the 20th anniversary of cooperation, the presidents of both companies gave each other occasional gifts: the chairman of China Minmetals received an honorable mining sword, while the president of KGHM was given a music box made of copper purchased from KGHM.
