Industries put CQ in good shape to weather Covid - CQ Today

Twenty per cent of jobs in Central Queensland rely on the agriculture, mining and manufacturing industries. That is double the rate for the rest of Australia, just 10 per cent of Australians are employed in these sectors.

These industries are essential and we are realising just how essential during the coronavirus pandemic. Food has been kept on our shelves thanks to our farmers and our national wealth has held up because our mines are still running. Our manufacturing industries have responded by producing enormous quantities of hand sanitisers and life saving ventilators.

We should take pride in the wealth that these industries produce for the nation from Central Queensland and the central role they have played in helping Australia respond to the coronavirus.
