Labor welcomes the Government’s announcement of the appointment of Stephen Smith to the Resources 2030 Taskforce examining the future of the resource industry.
As a proud West Australian – Stephen Smith has a profound understanding of the importance of the resources sector to Australia’s economic future.
Four of Australia’s top five exports are resources. As a former Minister Foreign Affairs, former Minister for Defence and former Minister for Trade, Stephen brings a depth of experience and knowledge about the global economic environment in which Australia’s resources companies are operating.
He will make an exceptional contribution to the Taskforce.
We look forward to seeing the Taskforce report.
