Policies

The following policy briefs are designed to enhance the business, economic and social environment for the NQ region to accelerate the recovery efforts from the pandemic. Each brief represents the requested policy changes across State and Federal Government that will help achieve outcomes specific to key business and community groups in North Queensland. While the benefits are focussed on the North Queensland region, many of the changes, if implemented, would have broader benefits to assist recovery in other regions across Australia.

The policy changes requested will enable the programs, projects and initiatives identified, by setting up a regulatory framework that achieves greater outcomes from the investment in the region. The policy changes will also support existing communities, businesses and projects within the region to be more effective and receive targeted relief.

The policy briefs are a mixture of those that achieve immediate support and reform, while others are focused on the longer term and seek to achieve sustainable reform for businesses and the community into the future.
