Deputy visits for 'future' meeting
THE new Deputy Prime Minister and Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan will be in Gladstone on Friday, July 16, to provide an insight into the many aspects set to affect the Gladstone Region over the next 20 years.
Over that time, Gladstone will need to reinvent itself into a city, and every business should plan and be ready or they will be left behind.
Hosted by the GAPDL and the Member for Flynn Chris Trevor, the “Financial State of the Nation; Future for our Region” business luncheon will focus on the future of the Gladstone Region; including upcoming development, growth and expansion.
He will also touch on the planned LNG developments set for the area and how these will impact the Gladstone Region, with the chance to ask questions at the end of his address.
Mr Trevor said he welcomed the Deputy Prime Minister's visit at a time when Gladstone was on the cusp of a major industrial boom.
“I thank Mr Swan for accepting my invitation to come to Gladstone to talk to our local community about local and national issues,” Mr Trevor said.
GAPDL CEO Glenn Churchill said it is GAPDL's aim to advance the Gladstone Region through the promotion and development of tourism, business and industry for the benefit of our members and the community as a whole.
