QMCA Orange Logomark

Advocacy

QMCA are the voice for the major contracting sector in Queensland. Representing our members, the project supply chain and associated stakeholders and strategic partners, we seek to use our collective voice to help ensure a sustainable construction industry in Queensland.

We believe that this will be achieved by working closely with Government, strategic partners and industry organisations and actively seek to provide insights, advice and counsel on our industry.


Election 2019

In the run up to the Federal Election on May 18, QMCA has called on the Coalition and Federal Labor to agree key commitments to support the infrastructure industry in Queensland, regardless of which party receives the honour of being chosen by the Australian people to form the next government.

The key priorities for QMCA and our members are:

  • Improved certainty and timing of project funding
  • An SEQ City Deal
  • Improved workplace relations

Authored by BIS Oxford Economics, Queensland Major Contractors Association and Infrastructure Association of Queensland, the report is a mainstay of government policy, media commentary and influence, as we actively pursue and deliver the transformational projects that employ our people, connect our communities and drive the long term economic and social wellbeing of the state.
