Abbot Point: Impact on local business meeting

This Thursday night, the Australia Institute will present key findings into the economic impacts of projects like Abbot Point in North Queensland, Australia.

It is an opportunity for the Whitsunday tourism community to understand how major developments like Abbot Point will impact your business or work place.

There are plans to dredge and dump 3 million cubic metres of dredge spoil north of the Whitsunday Islands to create the worlds biggest port. If these developments go ahead there may be a risk to the $6 billion tourism industry, the commercial fishing industry and over 60,000 jobs that rely on a healthy reef.

When: Thursday 27th March
Where: Airlie Beach Hotel, Conference Room, Level 1
Time: 5:30pm
