The Far North Qld region will be represented in meetings in Canberra this week by newly appointed Deputy Chair of Regional Development Australia Far North Qld & Torres Strait, Mr Brett Moller.

On Wednesday the combined Northern Australia Alliance of RDA’s consisting of eight RDA’s across North Qld, the Northern Territory and Northern Western Australia will meet Minister Matt Canavan the Minister for Resources and Northern Australia and senior bureaucrats to discuss projects, investment and progress of the Northern Australia policy.

Local RDA Chair David Kempton said Brett Moller was the committees longest serving member and a strong and experienced advocate for the region and will work with the Northern RDA Alliance members to leverage big policy focus on energy, water, transport and connectivity to advance agriculture, tourism and mining projects across Northern Australia.

Mr Moller will then attend a two-day RDA forum with various Ministers to advance regional priorities and get an understanding of the Federal Governments policy settings for investment, job creation and economic growth across Regional Australia.
