Qld work­ing to­wards bet­ter biose­cu­rity

The Western Star - - RURAL WEEKLY -

THE Queens­land Gov­ern­ment is in­vest­ing $750,000 to strengthen the state’s biose­cu­rity ca­pa­bil­ity through two new re­gional part­ner­ship projects.

Min­is­ter for Agri­cul­tural In­dus­try Devel­op­ment and Fish­eries Mark Furner said the Bet­ter Part­ner­ships Project would build on ex­ist­ing al­liances to im­prove Queens­land’s biose­cu­rity out­comes.

“Lo­cal gov­ern­ment, nat­u­ral re­source man­age­ment groups and a di­verse range of stake­hold­ers al­ready make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to man­ag­ing biose­cu­rity at a lo­cal level,” Mr Furner said.

“The Bet­ter Part­ner­ships Project will cre­ate even stronger, more ro­bust col­lab­o­ra­tion.”
