Australia the lucky country for Chinese investment | Energy Mines and MoneySince 2015 more than 55% of Chinese global investment has been in energy and resources projects, and Australia has been the largest benefactor. But why Australia?

At 2018 Energy Mines and Money today Blayney Morgan of ShineWing Australia said Australian resources and technical expertise helped put us on top of the Chinese investment list.

“Australia is the lucky country. It’s also the empty country in that deposits are easier to find. It’s got infrastructure, high quality professional bodies, major multi-nationals with a large presence, and world-class locals,” Mr Morgan said.

The people aspect was equally important, as China works to develop its own human capital.

“Chinese companies are learning from Australians on energy and resource development, and using Australian operations as a training ground to bring the talent back into the country.”

Chinese investment and construction worldwide has seen significant growth since the turn of the millennium, and is currently estimated to be valued at USD 1.7 trillion*.

The Energy Mines and Money Australia Conference has attracted more than 500 attendees, showcasing 40+ strategic mineral, coal, oil and gas opportunities, matching projects with global investment throughout the two-day event.

Supported by the Queensland Government, the programme examines the trends and forecasts that will shape investment and development for the mining, oil and gas industries into the future.

With $718 billion investment on show at the Energy Mines and Money conference is a clear sign that resource investment is on the rise.
