Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

SE­NIOR rep­re­sen­ta­tives from GVK Han­cock, Adani and North Queens­land Bulk Ports re­it­er­ated their com­mit­ment to de­vel­op­ment projects in the Whit­sun­day re­gion at the Bowen Busi­ness In­for­ma­tion Form (BBIF) held last Wed­nes­day.

The sell-out event was hosted by Whit­sun­days Mar­ket­ing and De­vel­op­ment Limited (WMDL) and JESI Man­age­ment So­lu­tions and pro­vided all 230 at­ten­dees from across Queens­land and in­ter­state with an up­date on cur­rent and fu­ture project plans and de­vel­op­ments. The In­for­ma­tion Fo­rum was opened with a mes­sage from Deputy Pre­mier and Min­is­ter for State De­vel­op­ment In­fra­struc­ture and Plan­ning, Jeff Seeney who ac­knowl­edged Bowen and the greater Whit­sun­days as be­ing key to Queens­land’s eco­nomic fu­ture, out­lin­ing the nu­mer­ous projects cur­rently tak­ing place in and around the re­gion.

WMDL’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Da­nial Rochford said the event went on to pro­vide a unique op­por­tu­nity for govern­ment, in­dus­try and the lo­cal com­mu­nity to share in­for­ma­tion.

He said all three rep­re­sen­ta­tives out­lined their or­gan­i­sa­tion’s com­mit­ment to work­ing with the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity in the Whit­sun­day re­gion.

He also en­cour­aged lo­cal businesses to take ad­van­tage of fo­rums such as this, which pro­vide an in­valu­able op­por­tu­nity to con­nect with se­nior rep­re­sen­ta­tives from ma­jor projects and govern­ment and to build stronger busi­ness net­works. “This will al­low our lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity to take ad­van­tage of the pro­cure­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties across our re­gion when they are of­fered,” he said.

“We are priv­i­leged to live in a re­gion with such a strong fu­ture eco­nomic out­look across the min­ing, ma­rine, hor­ti­cul­ture, agri­cul­ture and tourism in­dus­tries and it is im­por­tant that we all work to­gether to en­sure the de­liv­ery of sus­tain­able and long term ben­e­fits for the Whit­sun­days com­mu­nity.”
