How should one say in English that an event has caused another event to happen in the form of a sentence (the resultant event coming in sentence form). For example, I want to write that resource limitations have had the result that besides investment development, increase in investment efficiency also becomes greatly important. I wish to write this in a more concise and more formal way.
Already, I tried the following:
limitation in resources has resulted in investment efficiency becoming very important in addition to investment development.
