Held on 21st May, this year’s federal election is the first since the emergence of COVID and one set against the backdrop of a significant increase in infrastructure spending across the nation. This is particularly the case in Queensland where the Commonwealth Government investment in infrastructure projects has increased to the extent that the federal government is the majority contributor to major infrastructure spending in the state.
As the peak body for the sector in the state, QMCA along with like-minded industry bodies have identified critical areas that the major parties must address and implement if elected to office in order to maximise the investment for the betterment of the sector and Queenslanders who rely upon vital economically beneficial infrastructure development.
These issues can be broken down into a series of themes:
- Infrastructure investment and delivery
- Productivity & Industrial Relations
- Skills Shortages
QMCA has developed a Federal Election Issues Paper which examines each issue and identifies the areas of challenge and opportunity for the next federal government to invest, support, plan and deliver the critical economic infrastructure Queensland needs to thrive into the future.
