Australia Hosts Commodity Conference as Prices Fall

More than 2,000 people are meeting in a remote town in Australia for one of the world's biggest mining conferences.

The summit is taking place against a backdrop of falling commodity prices, which has led to concerns over the economy.

Australia, however, has managed to weather the storm.
