Goa Mineral Ore Export Association

 

 

Goa Mineral Ore Exporters’ Association (GMOEA )

 

 

 

 

 

Goa was ruled by the Portuguese from 1510 to 1961 AD. Although the occurrence of mineral ore were known in the latter part of 19th Century, prospecting etc was not carried out thereafter. Prospecting of Mineral ores was sporadically carried out in the early 20th Century by few Geologists as commissioned by the Portuguese Government. Mining Concessions were granted from 1930’s onwards to private entrepreneurs, and the mineral ore trade slowly rose up post the WWII.  Mining Activity thereafter commenced in the late 1940’s onwards and grew up in the years to come.

 

 

 

Post Goa being liberated in December 1961, it became a union territory of India.  As there was a need to form a trade chamber by the exporters immediately thereafter. The Association (i.e GMOEA ) was registered by the Government from 12th June 1963 and the articles of the same published in the Government Gazettee dated 20.6.1963. 

 

While the basic objectives of the Association is to promote, safeguard , secure organized action on all subjects related in the trade of export of ores it also involves making representations at various central and state government forums as well as with various local authorities.

 

The GMOEA as a voluntary efforts also register’s ores for export since over 3 decades thereby enabling statistical data of shipments effected from Goa which are published in the Annual Statistics after cross checking with both Ports. These statistics are relied by all Government as well as non Government Agencies.  Incidentally, GMOEA was also recognized by the Ministry of Commerce ‘ EXIM Policy’ to register ores from Goa from 1989 to 1996, post which EXIM policy was liberalized. However, members of the GMOEA and others till date maintain this self voluntary practice in the larger interest.

 

The Associations’ has always been in the forefront for addressing issues concerning related fronts with its members with a aim to ensure driving the needs for cohesive needs to address issues of concerns, including self regulation.  Needless to say, the testimony of the members itself being mine owners and exporters for over 6 decades  as members speaks about long standing nature and its responsibility to the Government.

 

 

 

The Association operates through three principal wings.

 

1)         The Managing Committee: Elected annually.

 

2)         The Permanent Secretariat: Implements decisions and policies to achieve the Association’s objectives.

 

3)         Smaller core group/ committees ( from member companies ) to discuss / shares issues on i.e  Mining, Shipping, Transports, Environment, Human Resources  etc. Thereby helping the  Managing Committee in making policy decisions.

 

Presently, GMOEA has a membership strength of 15 members, amongst them the majority and largest of Goa’s mineral ore exporters. It works closely with sister concerns such as Goa MiningAssociation (GMA) and The Mineral Foundationof Goa (MFG) to achieve its goals as well as the Goa Infrastructural Development company Pvt Ltd (GIDC Pvt Ltd ).

 

GMOEA is also registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 vide Registered No. 445/Goa/2013 on 12th June 2013and has its registered office in Panaji, Goa.
