Neil Lethlean, Economic Development Manager at Capricorn Enterprise, promises, “This year’s forum will be Bigger and Better with information sessions on upcoming infrastructure projects in the region.”

Proponents, managing contractors and industry sectors will highlight local industry content in upcoming infrastructure projects: roads/highways (with in excess of $250 million local investment), upgrades and new infrastructure within the expanded Shoalwater Bay Training Area, opportunities in the resources sector due to the expansion of coal mining activity in Centre Queensland and renewable energy investment.

Mr Lethlean urges local businesses to attend, “A recent meeting of the area’s major industry groups stressed the importance of understanding how and when larger infrastructure projects would be delivered, industry involvement in construction or supply chain opportunities and importantly scheduling so as to avoid overlapping, in essence all the key components of project delivery!”
