The Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) has called for economic reforms to boost investment in the resources sector, after the federal Budget revealed that the industry is accounting for a significant portion of revenue.

The MCA’s interim CEO, David Byers, said on Wednesday that the record resources exports of A$207-billion in 2017 underscored the importance of the minerals industry to economic prosperity.
