At Adani, we think big
Adani is proud to be leading this significant investment and infrastructure project in Australia that will not only provide an impetus for more projects and extending Australia’s flagging mining boom, it will generate over 10,000 Australian jobs. This significant investment and vote of confidence in Queensland and Australia as a reliable investment destination will underpin Australia’s higher quality coal exports to the Asian market. That market needs coal to support their massive electrification projects that will lift 100 million people out of poverty. That’s good for Australian jobs, good for the Queensland and Australian economies and by ensuring better quality coal from a well regulated exporting nation is good for the world environment also.
The Adani Group is one of India’s leading business houses with revenue of about $ 9.4 billion for the financial year 2013-2014. Adani is a globally integrated infrastructure player with businesses spanning coal trading, coal mining, oil and gas exploration, ports, multi-modal logistics, power generation and transmission and gas distribution.
