Sunshine Coast business and community groups have jumped at the opportunity to discuss new economic opportunities with Federal Communications Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, when he visits the region for a forum tomorrow.
Mr Turnbull is coming to the Sunshine Coast at the invitation of LNP candidate for Fairfax Ted O’Brien who says the response to the visit has been overwhelming.
“Well over 100 business and community leaders will be attending the forum, to discuss local challenges and opportunities,” Mr O’Brien said.
“Our business and industry sectors are vital to providing local economic and jobs growth and it seems there’s no shortage of local operators looking to innovate and look at new opportunities.”
“A key project I’ll be discussing with the Minister is the plan to bring an undersea optic cable onshore to the Sunshine Coast that will open up further local opportunities.
“I’ll be doing my bit to support Council and promote the importance of this project for our region.”
Mr Turnbull acknowledges the significance of the Sunshine Coast region to our economy.
"I’m really looking forward to meeting with local business and community leaders on the Sunshine Coast today to discuss the importance of telecommunications and economic benefits of increased connectivity.”
