Region ?is looking strong?, says Minister



GLADSTONE is still in a strong position with several major projects on the horizon, Minister for State Development and Innovation Tony McGrady said at the official opening of the Comalco Alumina Refinery (CAR) yesterday.

Parliamentary delegates and industry and community representatives attended the official opening of CAR, which marks the end of the most recent major project in Gladstone.

However, Mr McGrady said the outlook was still positive despite there being no immediate announcement for CAR Stage Two and with other industrial projects stalled.

'Gladstone is poised to just keep on keeping on,' Mr McGrady said.

Mr McGrady said he was regularly getting proposals for projects to be developed in the region and it was only a matter of time before another major project was approved.

Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane commended the CAR project for the employment it had created.

The CAR team was recognised for its industrial achievements and environmental performance during the official opening.
