The South Australian Government has announced the formation of a new advisory council to oversee the development of the Mining Industry Participation Office (MIPO) initiative.

State Manufacturing, Innovation and trade Minister, Tom Kenyon, said the council included leaders from the mineral and energy resources sector, industry associations and government.

“The advisory council will play a pivotal role in setting the strategic direction for MIPO and provide a framework for identifying and meeting future demand from South Australia’s resources sector,” Mr Kenyon said.

“The council’s work will focus on building local capacity and capability to ensure South Australian businesses are able to capture the opportunities our major minerals and energy resources projects present.”
