TOOWOOMBA and Surat Basin Enterprise continues to work hard for our region, with executive chairman Shane Charles holding meetings with federal ministers in Canberra.
Mr Charles led a party of key representatives to Canberra to advocate for the region with ministers, senators and staff across resources, agricultural, trade and health portfolios.
"We are raising the profile and needs of the region with elected officials at all levels of government ensuring that our political decision makers can make informed decisions in the best interests of the economic prosperity and diversity across the region,” Mr Charles said.
"TSBE has a clear mandate to ensure that both State and Federal politicians are aware of the activity in the wider Surat Basin Region.”
TSBE members were addressed by Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure, and Planning Cameron Dick at the first monthly Enterprise Evening for 2018.
Minister Dick acknowledged the Darling Downs region as an invaluable economic contributor, and reinforced the State Government's commitment to investing in regional growth.
