Orica CEO, Alberto Calderon, addresses The Melbourne Mining Club
08 Feb 2018
Sustaining our economic success
Australia is experiencing its longest period of sustained economic growth for at least the past 50 years. The resources industry has been a significant contributor to this period of economic resilience and growth, but with the resources investment boom largely behind us, what will drive our future growth?
Orica CEO, Alberto Calderon, believes a tax environment that incentivises investment will benefit all Australians through job creation, increased wages and improved living standards. By building on our comparative advantage and global scale in resources, Alberto believes the mining industry can continue to contribute to Australia’s growth and living standards. He sees an opportunity for Australia to become a global leader in mining automation, expand our mining services sector, increase our knowledge-based exports and apply our experience to other sectors.
