Rockhampton Mayor Tony Williams and I are partnering on the Rocky 2030 strategy, which focuses on identifying and pursing opportunities to grow and diversify our local economy and create sustainable, secure jobs.
We will partner with local business and community leaders on projects and initiatives that will help to drive the growth of our region over the next decade and beyond.
To start the discussion, I have commissioned a whitepaper, which outlines some of the opportunities open to our region, including in areas like advanced manufacturing, recycling, aquaculture and defence. It also highlights some of the potential projects that could bolster out local competitive advantages. You can read it here.
