QRC Welcomes Australian Government Commitment To Resources

The Queensland Resources Council (QRC) has welcomed the announcement from the Morrison Government of a new Skills Organisation Pilot to focus on the mining industry.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison made the announcement today at the QRC’s annual launch of the economic contribution data for the sector.

QRC Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said the Australian Government’s recognition of the importance of an ongoing skills base for the resources sector reinforced the value of mining both now and decades into the future.
