CIM MES: Hong Kong Chapter

The CIM MES Hong Kong Chapter is the first established chapter of CIM MES, a Society within CIM, in the Asia Pacific Region. It strives to assist the various mining and energy communities in Hong Kong and various Asian Pacific Regions in building opportunities for professional growth. The CIM MES Hong Kong Chapter was established in 2012 to offer an educational platform in Hong Kong for professional development, networking, sharing best practices, and facilitating collaborative efforts within these industries.

Management and Economics Society

The Management and Economics Society (MES) is part of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM). The Society was originally formed as the Mineral Economics Committee of CIM in 1973. Then, in 1992, it became a fully-fledged Society. The Mineral Economics Society changed its name to the Management and Economics Society of CIM in May 2004 in order to encompass others in the mining and energy industry sectors who may not have a technical background.

MES provides a home within the CIM organization for industry professionals whose focus is economics, finance and management. Members are from all areas of professional endeavour, including: senior management, geology, engineering, metallurgy, environmental, law, accounting, taxation, banking, investments, academia, government, human resources, social development, consultancy, insurance, and many more. All are welcome!

The Management and Economics Society sponsors various educational and social events across Canada and internationally that provide industry professionals with the opportunity to network and share experiences, insights and ideas on topics relating to the economics, management and financial aspects of the business. Keep up to date by checking us out often at:

The Society also provides financial support to various university educational initiatives and programs.

CIM MES has played a leading role in the development of standards and definitions used in the mining industry as well as supporting the publication of several CIM reference volumes. Specifically, MES has taken a leadership position within CIM on important industry issues through the Ore Reserves Committee and the Mineral Property Valuation Committee (CIMVal).
