Adani project ‘moving forward’, says Ciobo
‘Taking longer than Australia’s liking’
Australia’s Trade, Tourism and Investment Minister Steven Ciobo on Wednesday said the Adani Group’s planned multibillion dollar coal mining project was moving forward, but was taking “much longer than the [Australian] government would have liked.”
“It is certainly moving forward... There have been aspects of that investment that have taken much longer than I would have liked or the government would have liked. That is the statement of fact, but there is a process to be followed,” Mr. Ciobo told reporters.
Asked whether the Australian government was looking to extend financing support to the Adani Group for the mining project through its Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF), the Minister said there was a separate body looking into it.
