Queensland Cabinet meets on Gold Coast this month
THE Queensland Government's next Community Cabinet meeting will be held at the Gold Coast on May 15 and 16.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has told Parliament the Community Cabinet meeting is an opportunity for the government to meet with local business owners, families and workers.
"The Community Cabinet meeting will be an important opportunity for my government to further our work on the Gold Coast to create new jobs and opportunities," the Premier said.
The public forum at the Gold Coast will be held on Sunday, May 15, starting at 1.30pm at Southport State High School.
"All Community Cabinet meetings hosted by my government include a public forum where members of the public can ask questions directly to me and my ministers," the Premier said.
The public forum will be immediately followed by formal deputations, which will be taken by ministers and directors-general of government departments in the school hall from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
"The Gold Coast is growing strongly. As a government, we are contributing to the growth in jobs and opportunity on the Gold Coast," the Premier said.
"We're building or upgrading 17 world-class facilities for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, making this area a powerhouse that will inject $2 billion into the Queensland economy and support around 30,000 jobs."
