The Australia Institute invites you to a free public forum…
WHY QUEENSLAND’S COAL AND GAS BOOM MATTERS TO YOU
It is often claimed that the enormous expansion of coal and gas mining in Queensland is good for the economy. Yet there is mounting evidence that many Queenslanders are losing out as the resource boom continues to “crowd out” tourism, manufacturing, agriculture and education businesses.
This forum brings together representatives from key non-mining sectors of the Queensland economy to discuss the implications of the resource boom for their industries.
Findings will be presented from a new study by The Australia Institute which quantifies the losses faced by farmers as a result of the high Australian dollar, largely resulting from the resource boom.
