National accounts figures show Australian economy still too reliant on mining exports: Greens

Greens Treasury spokesperson Adam Bandt MP today said the national accounts released this morning reveal that the Australian economy is still heavily reliant on mining exports, leaving us exposed to changing prices and demand.

“It’s concerning that growth is still so heavily reliant on mining exports, because it leaves us exposed to changing prices and demand,” Mr Bandt said.

“The figures confirm we must redouble our efforts to grow the new economy, including by making Australia a renewable energy superpower.”
