One hundred days before the State Election in Queensland, guests of the SAS Group and other business groups attended the Brisbane Club’s monthly Business Series: On the Election, featuring Queensland Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington and Opposition Treasurer Tim Mander.
Plans and policies unveiled yesterday revealed the Liberal National Party plans to stay tightly focused on the issues of job creation and supercharging the Queensland regions currently feeling economic pain.
A total of $1 billion in infrastructure projects to deliver economic stimulus were announced, including a new pledge of $245m to duplicate the Centenary Highway on top of promises to duplicate the M1, and the Sunshine Coast Motorway.
Plans to open up the Galilee basin to $50 billion in investment, creating an expected 15,000 jobs, were also targeted while previous policies concerning the creation of the Queensland Dam Corporation in Townsville, the New Bradfield Scheme and other water projects in the North were also highlighted.
Ms Frecklington was introduced by Opposition Treasurer Tim Mander who spotlighted economic data on the current Government’s performance.
