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.

China is bringing in new regulations to raise the quality threshold for imported coal, and many are predicting that this may be one of the final nails in the coffin of coal – hardly.

This move by China was not entirely unexpected, as it seeks to improve its failing coal industry, and may even work to Australia’s advantage.

Currently more than two thirds of Chinese coal mining companies [...]

TOURING an abattoir in western China last month, the managing director of cattle exporter Frontier International Agri Hamish Browning was surprised. The facility, which has the capacity to process 800 head of cattle per day, had not a beast in sight.

“I was told it hadn’t been used since 2010,” Mr Browning says, “they just haven’t been able to get cattle.”

The murmurings that China’s beef processing [...]
