Plan to Develop Galilee Basin Unveiled (Australia)
A strategy to facilitate the development of the Galilee Basin and deliver up to 28,000 new jobs was unveiled by the Newman Government today.
Speaking at the Major Projects Conference in Brisbane, Premier Campbell Newman said the Galilee Basin Development Strategy would grow the resources sector as one of the four pillars of the Queensland economy and untangle the planning mess left behind by the Labor Government.
“My government is unashamedly all about growing the business of Queensland and we will do all we can to facilitate the projects proposed for the Galilee Basin,” Mr Newman said.
Queensland Resources Council Chief Executive Michael Roche was interviewed by media following release this morning by Premier Campbell Newman of the Galilee Basin Development Strategy.
