In response to the 2018 House of Representatives Standing Committee inquiry into how the mining sector can support businesses in regional economies, QLCLN commissioned a research project to develop a better answer to the question ‘what is local?’ This research addresses a key recommendation from the inquiry’s final report.
KEEPING IT IN THE REGIONS
A better practice model for local content and defining local business.
The resources sector has long recognised the value of local content in its projects. It’s a way of reducing costs, reducing risks and increasing the long-term sustainability of regional economies. Buying locally also demonstrates the sector’s long-term commitment to its local community.
