The Queensland METS 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan (PDF icon 5.25 MB) sets out the groundwork for the mining equipment, technology and services sector's next wave of growth.

The plan is part of the Queensland Government's $420 million Advance Queensland initiative to strengthen our state's economy and create high-value, knowledge-based jobs of the future for Queenslanders.


Queensland's METS sector employs 19,500 people across Queensland, generating $7 billion in revenue and $2.5 billion in value add to the Queensland economy.

With global population growth and increasing standards of living contributing to the demand for natural resources, Queensland's METS sector is well-placed to meet these challenges and lead the innovation necessary for the industry to improve productivity and environmental sustainability.
