Hancock Prospecting Executive Chairwoman Gina Rinehart says she does not think either major party leader is “sufficiently across” what she sees as Australia’s “two most important issues”. Ms Rinehart told Sky News host Chris Smith that one of these issues is defence. “I repeatedly say, if we don’t have our country, what do we have? “And the second one is the economy, the economy is so important, it’s what drives living standards, it’s what drives jobs, it’s what drives revenue, it’s what drives opportunities.

Group executive news
An explosion of COVID-19 cases in WA is intensifying staffing woes, directly impacting businesses which continue to bear the brunt of skills shortages. As cases soared to a record high of 17,000 on Wednesday — well above the original peak prediction of 10,000 — businesses were left grappling with a surge in virus-related absenteeism. Some are optimistic conditions will improve from here as the case load comes down. However, others are anticipating further disruptions as potential new strains emerge. WA’s resources sector has also acutely felt the impacts of absenteeism.
Handing down his second state budget as Treasurer, Premier Mark McGowan proudly showed off an Apple Wallet with a balance of $5.7bn. The eye watering operating budget surplus is not the biggest in history. Last year the state - better known for shunning visitors and stunning sunsets - banked $5.8bn as the rest of the country was in and out of Covid lockdowns. Where did WA find all that cash? In the ground and from around Australia. Iron ore keeps WA's books in the black.
Royalties from iron ore to feed the steel mills of China have allowed Western Australia to emerge from the pandemic with a surplus while NSW and Victoria face years of growing debt. The mines in the Pilbara region will deliver Premier Mark McGowan $10.3 billion this financial year, allowing the resource state to record a $5.7 billion surplus and cut net debt for the third year running. The WA government earns more from iron ore than land tax, stamp duty and payroll tax combinedIron ore will deliver almost 90 per cent of WA’s royalty income, from mining and oil and gas extraction.
