Initiative promotes projects from Townsville businesses
Four weeks ago, Townsville Enterprise delivered an Economic Action Plan to the State and Federal Governments identifying local projects and policies towards immediate community support and long-term economic recovery.
It says the latest initiative – Locals Building up Locals – builds upon that database of projects to ensure no stone is left unturned and that that information is provided in a coordinated manner.
Townsville Enterprise chief executive officer Patricia O’Callaghan said the next six months were crucial and that the organisation would work with local businesses and State and Federal governments to get their projects turning sod where possible.
“These are the projects for the local tradies, local surveyors, and local engineers among others, and whilst Townsville Enterprise is not the owners, assessors or funders, we will be an advocate to ensure government is well aware of what is shovel or employment ready – big or small – in North Queensland,” Ms O’Callaghan said.
“Whilst we are in continuous discussions with State and Federal Governments on nation building projects like Hells Gates, CopperString and the Museum of Underwater Art, it is important we are also focused on those local business projects that will keep the economy ticking whilst we commence the road to recovery.”
Townsville Enterprise encourages all local businesses in North Queensland to submit the details of their project at townsvilleenterprise.com.au
