The Queensland government has announced a $1.8 billion boost into the mining, technology and service sector in the next 12 months.

The boost is designed for innovation and job creation and will be delivered in 11 state-based industry support activities in partnership with METS Ignited. The announcement was made at the QME event currently being held in Mackay.

Activities include a series of workshops designed to increase awareness of growth opportunities in the METS sector, funding to identify and promote opportunities for companies to develop and supply efficient energy and commercially valuable solutions to the energy and resources industry, and continued support to determine gaps in existing test facility availability in Australia.

It will also help innovative start-ups and companies turn their ideas into commercial realities.
