Australia boasts one of the most competitive and efficient mining sectors in the world. It is a sector where Australia significant competitive advantage. But it is a sector that is also undergoing tremendous disruptive change through the impact of new technologies from artificial intelligence, robotics, remote sensoring and all forms of industrial automation. This is a challenge and opportunity for Australia. If we can reconfigure our supply chains in the Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector and build a strong domestic capability, we can make our mines more efficient as well as export these products and services to the world. Capability developed in our huge mining sector can be leveraged into adjacent industries ranging from agriculture and food production to defence and space.
