Port bosses to talk about fu­ture

NewsMail - - NEWS -

HELP­ING lo­cal busi­nesses cap­i­talise on the growth of the Port of Bund­aberg will be a key topic of con­ver­sa­tion when the Bund­aberg Cham­ber of Com­merce holds its next lun­cheon.

The cham­ber is part­ner­ing with Glad­stone Ports Cor­po­ra­tion for the event and will be joined by oper­a­tions man­ager An­drew Davis and Bund­aberg port man­ager Ja­son Pas­coe, who will high­light op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­port and im­port prod­ucts through both ports.

Mr Pas­coe said both ports held great po­ten­tial for the growth of lo­cal busi­nesses.

“GPC has made great progress in at­tract­ing new busi­ness and pur­su­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties that can ben­e­fit busi­nesses based in the Wide Bay and Bur­nett re­gion, such as the com­mence­ment of a reg­u­lar con­tainer­ised liner ser­vice through the Port of Glad­stone and the de­vel­op­ment of new bulk trades through the Port of Bund­aberg,” he said.

“The next step is to look at ways in which we can as­sist re­gion­ally-based busi­ness and in­dus­try to cap­i­talise on the fo­cus that the port is gain­ing.”
