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:

What is ANDEV?

ANDEV is made up of individuals and businesses in Australia demanding that our government welcome investment and provide economic vision for the country’s future.

We want to unleash the potential of North Australia by getting government out of the way.

ANDEV provides a voice to all of those who wish to see Northern Australia thrive.

Article – Roll out the red carpet for business

by 18 April 2016
