Keep Queensland Competitive

If you hurt QLD resources, you hurt QLD's future.

Keep Queensland Competitive

All Queenslanders should benefit when the price of coal increases – and we already do.

However, the Queensland Government’s decision, without industry consultation, to raise coal royalty taxes to the highest in the world has made Queensland uncompetitive, putting investment, jobs and the long-term interest of all Queenslanders at risk.

The Government should work with industry on policies to keep Queensland competitive and ensure Queenslanders in all parts of the state can continue to benefit from a strong resources sector in the years ahead.
