Australia’s economy is largely built on its’ natural resources, with mining being Australia’s single largest industry contributing over 70% of the nation’s global exports. The sector has remained relatively stable and profitable, even amid the uncertainty of the pandemic. Australia’s natural resources, and mining, will play a pivotal role in the future prosperity of all Australians, Australia’s engagement with the world and the global movement on climate change and de-carbonisation.
The Australian mining sector is one of those most open to foreign investment, remains a cornerstone of Australia’s high levels of employment, and a major beneficiary of research activity and technological innovations that help advance its development.
As one of the world’s leading producers of critical minerals and metals, Australia’s mining sector is adapting to sustainability challenges, while also standing on the brink of unprecedented opportunities from a low-carbon future. To achieve this, not only is new investment required, but new technology and innovations are needed, as well as enhancements to workplace productivity.
Against this backdrop, AustCham Hong Kong and Asia Mining Club welcome the opportunity to hear from Australia’s Minister for Resources, The Hon Madeleine King MP. Minister King will share her views on:

• the Australian government’s roadmap for supporting the mining sector
