Despite pessimism about our resources sector, Australia remains one of the best places in the world to do business

For example Kenya has unexpectedly increased royalties on minerals produced in the east African country and revoked certain mining licenses in order to get a bigger share of earnings from its mining sector. The new measures, which came as a surprise to mining companies in the country, followed a sector-wide review and was aimed at ensuring east Africa's biggest economy got a more favourable deal, Mining Secretary Najib Balala said.
