Modern workplace rules, revived tax reform and better environment laws will help the Australian minerals industry to continue to invest and grow with confidence, supporting regional communities and a more prosperous Australia.

Key priorities for this year and beyond include:
- Modernising Australia’s workplace rules to drive productivity gains and national prosperity
