AMCA welcomes release of the National Resources Statement

Following the work in 2018 of the Resources 2030 Taskforce, the Australian Government has released its National Resources Statement (https://www.industry.gov.au/data-and-publications/australias-national-resources-statement).  AMCA welcomes the Statement as it, among other things, emphasises the role of the resources sector in the national economy and recognises how much of this economic contribution takes place based in Australia’s regional mining cities.  The Statement sets out five objectives, one of which is to ensure community benefits are at the heart of the agenda going forward.  AMCA will work with the Australian Government to continue to ensure this point is properly recognised and rewarded.
