SCBC recently held a lunch for its members to hear from Queensland LNP Senator Gerard Rennick. The lunch commenced with a tour of the USC where the Senator was shown the new music and theatre facilities, the sports stadium and recovery facilities and ‘The Cave’, a world class visualisation studio, available for use by schools and community groups as well as university students. The lunch discussion was wide ranging and included topics such as tax and industrial reform, the need for improved regional facilities such as food manufacturing and logistics capabilities as part of a Covid recovery program for the region, the impact of Covid on the region and businesses and mental health, as well as the recently announced Federal Government Job-Ready Graduates program.
