  • better focus the sector’s innovation, research and development on long-term, sectoral growth
  • develop and retain the world’s best workforce
  • deliver better outcomes for stronger and more engaged communities

This strategic long-term approach aims to position Australia’s resources sector as the world’s most advanced, innovative and successful.
