The said trip was made to comprehend the “first part of a complex process” whereby African minerals are brought to be used in devices of “high-tech” companies.
The trip was carried prior to the world coming to a stand still due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. However, the trip played a vital role in the announcement made the company in its “2030 Corporate Responsibility Goals” relating to responsible sourcing.
The team from Intel reached out to Rwanda’s mine operators, as well as the “refiners and local government leaders”.
