FLY IN, FLY OUT FRASER COAST & NATIONAL MINING JOBS

March 5th, 2011

MONEY TO COME INTO FRASER COAST WITH A FLY IN FLY OUT FORMAT
26 February 2011

Fly In Fly Out-Fill out the survey


Our collegaues at Regional Innovations Australia are conducting an online survey to ascertain the number of people who are interested  in living in the Wide Bay area of Queensland and using the Fraser Coast  airports as a fly in fly out hub to mining destinations.

The establishment of a Fly in Fly Out (FIFO) hub during the curent Australian mining boom could be a major economic boost for lifestyle areas who otherwise will miss out on the  great mining boom.

Achieving a target of even 1000 people living  in a coastal area and working in remote mining locations could generate a minimum $100,000,000 to $150,000,000 in wages to an economy.

The aim is to determine commercial and economic opportunities around the creation of a FIFO hub on Queensland’s Fraser Coast for those within 1 1/2 hours driving distance of Hervey Bay.

The survey can be taken at:

October 8th, 2010

Dear Chamber Members & Supporters,

This morning sees the launch of the Chronicle’s “Drive to Survive” campaign.

Spanning the age groups, the deaths over the last 4 months have been truly shocking

On behalf of the Chronicle, I would ask for your support as we campaign to get 10,000 people on the Fraser Coast to take our Pledge online. The ‘drive to survive’ pledge is a 10 point commitment to safer driving and we are asking all our members and supporters to sign up on the website www.frasercoastchronicle.com.au

I do hope we can have your support and you will pass this on to your staff and encourage them to sign.

CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE TO REMAIN RELEVANT

September 28th, 2010

Together we will best address the challenges for Queensland’s Chamber

movement

One of the biggest challenges for the Chamber movement is ensuring that

we remain highly relevant to today’s business community.

Chamber of Commerce & Industry Queensland (CCIQ) is planning a forum for

all Queensland local chambers in March 2011. The purpose will be to help

participants develop relevant skills and knowledge to drive business prosperity

and enable member businesses to achieve a solid bottom line and seed for growth.

We ask that you complete our Expression of Interest form to let us know whether

you would be interested in attending a state-wide forum and what key

issues/topics you feel your chamber would benefit from learning more about.

To help us progress in our planning we ask that you complete this brief online

form

For further information please call us on 07 3842 2267 or

Chamber of Commerce Queensland and Industry Queensland Business Update
30 July 2010

Commonwealth Bank CCIQ Pulse Survey of Business Conditions
June Quarter 2010

This quarter has seen a dramatic downturn in business confidence and conditions

at both a State and National level with all indicators falling sharply. This confirms

fears from the last quarter that the Queensland and Australian economies may not

yet be clear of the effects of the global economic uncertainty and outlook.

What is apparent from the June Pulse Survey is that more than ever, business and

consumer confidence and economic and political uncertainty have a profound

impact on the stability and performance of our economy. In the three months to

June 2010 a number of significant policy decisions and events including the

announcement and subsequent scrapping of the Resource Super Profits Tax,

the change of leadership in Federal Parliament and the ongoing speculation

on the federal election have culminated to depress consumer spending and

business profitability and growth.

CCIQ brings the above and attached information to your attention and kindly

requests you to take this into account in your deliberations over coming months.
