Click the video above to hear Townsville Enterprise CEO, Patricia O'Callaghan discuss the importance of the North and the key sectors driving our region with Peter Gleeson on Sky News Australia.
Townsville and North Queensland was promoted front and centre by Townsville Enterprise on a prime time national news program earlier this week.
On Monday 7 January, Townsville Enterprise CEO Patricia O’Callaghan joined Shadow Minister for Environment, Science, the Great Barrier Reef and Tourism, David Crisafulli MP on Peter Gleeson’s Sky News Australia program, Gleeso's News Talk.
The panel session provided a key opportunity to discuss the significance of the North to the national economy, the current challenges our community is facing and the projects and policies that would drive future economic growth.
The Greens recent 'Galilee Basin (Coal Prohibition)' Bill was highlighted and the detrimental impact this Bill would have on the economic potential for the Galilee Basin, the Adani Carmichael Mine project, the communities of regional Queensland and Australia as a whole.
It's important that the message of 'A Strong North is a Strong Nation' is heard nationally and we acknowledge Sky News Australia and Peter Gleeson for this opportunity.
