Brisbane pushes to be FIFO hub
Tony Moore 14..2..12

In a packed room at the Sebel Hotel this morning, Lord Mayor Graham
Quirk has presented a 20-year plan for Brisbane’s growth.

He has told business delegates this expanding sector is the key
strategy of the city’s plan to generate the 340,000 new jobs during
the next decade.

Use Queensland workers, Indian miner told

For every direct mining job created in Queensland, 19 extra jobs had
been created in Brisbane.

“The great thing about these jobs is the majority of them are
long-term high value professional services,” he said.

Resource industry firms already contribute $25 billion to the Greater
Brisbane economy each year, he said.

This resource industry growth is the key thrust of a 20-year plan for
Brisbane Cr Quirk will unveil this morning.

“The global expansion of resource industries is bringing an
unprecedented window of opportunity to Brisbane and we are on the cusp
of a resource-based economic transformation,” he said.

“This is expected to drive strong business investment and expansion in
Brisbane and this plan sets out the economic agenda to ensure Brisbane
is in the best possible position to maximise the returns from the
current resource boom and deliver long-term prosperity for our city
and its residents.”

Brisbane is already headquarters for mining companies such as Santos,
BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Peabody Energy, Xstrata, Vale and Bechtel.

Cr Quirk said Brisbane’s growing resource industry base generated job
opportunities in other mining-related businesses.

“That includes a wide range of supporting service industries including
financial, legal, specialist consulting, research and recruitment
services,” he said.

The 20-year economic development plan predicts Brisbane would grow
faster than Hong Kong and Singapore by 2020.

Industry in Brisbane generates around 46 per cent of Queensland’s
gross domestic product and about 9 per cent of the national GDP total,
the plan finds.

Cr Quirk said Brisbane was forecast to double its economy to $217
billion by 2031 and the city’s heart would grow out towards Milton,
South Brisbane, Fortitude Valley and Bowen Hills to cope with the
expected growth.

Brisbane City Council last year announced a moratorium on
infrastructure charges to attract new five-star hotels to the city and
earlier this year announced an advertising push into other capital
cities to lure business to Brisbane.

The key drivers of Brisbane’s growth over the next 10 years include:

– targeting Brisbane’s professionals to join trade missions to Asia;

– supporting the growth of Brisbane as a hub to resource industries in

– expanding business opportunities linked to Brisbane’s air and sea ports; and

– attracting extra airline services and connections to Brisbane./end quote

It will also build a new airstrip for fly-in, fly-out workers and new

”NEW DELHI: The skills that are essential for the Australian economy in the long term are available in India, and the Australian government is looking to tap the young Indian base in a big way in the coming years.

The Australian minister for immigration and citizenship Chris Evans, who is in New Delhi, in the wake of widespread violent attacks against Indian students in Australia, told ET that in view of the ageing workforce in Australia, the government was increasingly looking to attract Indian IT, engineering and medical professionals as permanent residents under the skilled stream migration programme (SSMP).”

  1. The Adani Group on Thursday announced plans to invest $ 6 billion by 2015 to develop its three core clusters of resources, logistics and energy. The investment will be funded by a mix of internal accruals, equity and debt. It will largely go to its new Australian coal mining operation.

    ELEANOR HALL: Now to the plan by a multibillion dollar Indian company to build a new town in Queensland.
    The Adani mining company wants to build the community to house workers for a massive coal mine proposed for central western Queensland. It would be the largest investment by an Indian company in Australia.
    And while the planning is in its early stages it’s already stirring up a storm of environmental and employment concerns, as Imogen Brennan reports.

    IMOGEN BRENNAN: The Indian based Adani Group calls itself a “business behemoth”.

    The conglomerate recorded billions of dollars profit last financial year through its interests in oil, gas, mining and infrastructure.

    Now it has its sights set on a parcel of land in the Galilee Basin in central western Queensland, which is an area destined to become Queensland’s busiest region for coal production.

    The company wants to extract 60 million tonnes of coal annually from an open-cut and underground mine about 100 kilometres north of Emerald http://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/content/2012/s3430104.h

  2. Adani group harriedly called for a PC in Ahmedabad after Goa CBI arrested Rajesh Adani, MD of Adani group in connection with an old case. The officials questioned the sudden arrest of Rajesh Adani saying that the top man can;t be held responsible for every dealing of the company.

    Sep 20 2011 Gujarat High Court has directed an enquiry into the alleged destruction of mangroves by the Adani group companies in Mundra, and ordered formation of a special team for the purpose.
    The directions to the effect were issued on Sunday by division bench of Justice Jayant Patel and Justice R M Chaya while hearing a petition filed by Kheti Vikas Seva Trust of Mundra, Kutch, seeking contempt of court proceeding against Adani Group companies, namely, Mundra Port and SEZ Ltd (MPSEZL) and Adani Power Limited (APL).
