QRC picks its policies
Queensland's peak lobby group releases State Government wish list
Wednesday 01 November 2017  

The Queensland Resources Council’s (QRC) says royalty stability, a more predictable regulatory environment, and cheaper power are their top three political issues in the upcoming state election.

The QRC also wants the new government to apply more scientific rigour in the way activist claims are processed and wants increased investment in infrastructure to facilitate growth in the resources sector.

QRC Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said the resources industry underpins the economic prosperity of the state, employing more than 300 thousand full-time employees, and a government supporting the sector would see more investment in regional economies.

“The resources sector drives our regional communities from Townsville and Mt Isa in the North through to Toowoomba and Roma in the South,” he said.

“Resources investment and jobs also make Brisbane the state’s biggest mining town – with $27 billion of Brisbane’s Gross Regional Product coming from the resources sector.

“It’s paramount the next Queensland Government recognises the sector’s contribution to the economy, including $3.8 billion in royalties forecast for the Budget this year.”

Mr Macfarlane said every Queenslander, regardless of where they call home, had a vested interest in seeing our minerals and energy industries succeed and grow.

“A strong voice from the government will mean that the resources sector can continue to underpin the state’s economy, jobs, and royalties for decades to come.”
