Coalition’s Draft Discussion Paper – Developing Northern Australia: A 2030 Vision

The Coalition’s Draft Discussion Paper, Developing Northern Australia: A 2030 Vision received widespread support in the days after it was reported in the media. The Business Spectator praised the Discussion Paper’s vision and foresight here and here. The paper also received support from many groups in Northern Australia, including the Cairns Chamber of Commerce and Mt Isa Mayor and former State Labor MP The Hon. Cr Tony McGrady AM. The Daily Telegraph’s editorial noted America’s economic growth was driven by westward expansion and questions why Australia can’t achieve something similar developing the North.

Our response to the the Coalition’s Northern Development and Dams and Water Management Task Group Discussion Papers:

AUSTRALIAN mining billionaire Gina Rinehart has called on Australia’s business community to step up and engage with politicians to explain why onerous regulation — which she says is hurting investment — needs to be reduced.

Mrs Rinehart said it was “wishful thinking” to assume it was understood that high-cost Australia, with its declining productivity, must be cost competitive overseas or face losing markets and much- needed tax revenue.
