What is Copper and what is its strategic importance ?

Copper is a reddish metal that is atomic number 29 on the periodic table. It is one of the first metals extracted and used by humans. Since the beginning of civilisation, the metal has made key contributions to sustaining and improving society. Initially, the use of copper was limited to coins and ornaments.

*The majority of copper produced globally is used for the construction of buildings, electrical and transportation equipment, electronic segments, industrial machinery, and consumer products.
