QTPA Member Alert | Queensland State Government Six-Month Action Plan January-June 2013. (21/1/13)

Queensland State Government Six-Month Action Plan January-June 2013.

As the new Queensland government starts to obtain traction they have laid out their next six months action plan that will carry them through to June 2013.  In talking with Ministers and their advisers during the Turf Queensland Erosion Control Demonstration on the 16th of January, they advise that they are now starting to get rubber onto the road after the drastic steps that had to be taken to balance the state budget.  With this in mind it seems the next 12 months should be beneficial to industry.  I have attached for your benefit details on the published action plan.

The Newman Government yesterday announced its priorities for the next six months in the form of a Six Month Action Plan  January – June 2013, containing 148 priority actions across a range of areas.

A link to the full recommendations can be found here however priorities particularly relevant to industry include:
