LONDON, July 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Anglo American, one of the world's largest miners, today reported strong first half growth with operating profit ahead 40% to $6bn.
In a video interview with financial broadcaster http://www.cantos.com, Chief Executive Cynthia Carroll said that investments made during the downturn would stand them in good stead in the near-term future.
"Thanks to the investments that we have continued to make over the last three to four years, we are delivering new product to the market at the right time, while the industry is facing some significant supply constraints. And at the same time we are continuing to focus and to drive improving operational excellence. We believe that the fundamentals for the mining industry are very, very strong, and therefore the longer-term outlook is extremely positive."
