Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney Visits Aquis Site

Queensland Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney recently toured the Aquis site for the first time to encourage locals to make their submission on the EIS.

Aquis CEO Justin Fung met with Mr Seeney as well as the Member for Barron River Michael Trout and the Member for Cairns Gavin King in late July to see first hand where the Aquis project will be built.

Mr Seeney said the proposal had the potential to create up to 20,000 jobs in the long term and it could serve as a “major shot in the arm” for the tourism and construction sectors.

“Predictions that this proposed resort could create over 3,700 new jobs during the first stage of construction, 3,500 during the second, and up to 20,000 ongoing jobs is clearly an exciting prospect for Cairns and the Far North Queensland economy,” he said.

He said that the State Government was in “strong support” of the project, but it was subject to approval from the Coordinator General (CoG).
