Port of Brisbane CEO to join Premier’s Business Advisory Council

Port of Brisbane CEO Roy Cummins has accepted an offer from the State Government to join the Premier’s Business Advisory Council.

The Council comprises a group of senior business and industry leaders that discusses economic policy initiatives with the Premier.

 “On behalf of the Port of Brisbane, I look forward to joining my business colleagues in contributing to the economic policy discussion with the State Government,” Mr Cummins said.

 “It’s important that Government and the business sector maintain a constructive and productive dialogue when it comes to the economic settings that affect our state, and policies and initiatives that could enhance economic growth and create jobs.

 “Being asked to take part is a wonderful reflection on the status of the Port of Brisbane, the important role it plays in our state’s economy, and the hard work of all our employees.

 “The Port of Brisbane has a long and proud history of facilitating Queensland’s trade relationships domestically and internationally. We are Australia’s largest and most diverse multi-cargo Port, handling around half of Queensland’s international trade annually.

 “We are also an active investor in infrastructure, and we proudly lead our sector in environmental and technological innovation.

 “Most importantly, we are a proud Queensland business, determined to do what we can to help other Queensland businesses and the Queensland economy grow.”

 Mr Cummins’ first meeting as part of the Council will be in Townsville today (Wednesday).
