Date published:
3 June 2021

This statement was published under the previous Australian Government. 

The Global Resources Statement positions the nation’s resources sector as a reliable, responsible and ready for the future investment destination for resources exploration and supply.

The statement is the first milestone achieved under the government’s Global Resources Strategy. The strategy is the whole-of-government framework announced as part of the recent 2021-22 Federal Budget. The government will invest $20.1 million over two years to deliver the Global Resources Strategy. 

The Global Resources Statement will:  

  • encourage other countries to partner and invest in Australia
  • improve the global reach of Australia’s economy and boost our international competitiveness
  • draw together existing resources and programmes
  • access opportunities through international collaboration and support.

The statement builds on the government’s action plan set out in the National Resources Statement. Australia is striving to be the most globally attractive and competitive investment destination for resources projects.
