Chief Minister Andrew Barr: State of the TerritoryShare Event on Facebook Share Event on Twitter Share Event on LinkedIn
The opportunity for business and government to come together to hear the Chief Minister Andrew Barr give a summary of how he sees our territory, what the future holds and where we should prioritise was a happy gathering of the newly blended Canberra Business Chamber under the Chairmanship of ACT Australian of the Year Glenn Keyes for this ‘State of the Territory’ address.
Keyes left no one in doubt where the CBC was focusing and the sponsorship of the very smart lunch at the National Press Club by UNSW was evidence of the Keyes ability to connect and network.
The Chief Minister performed well, outlining the projects and priorities for the Canberra we want with tantalizing opportunities for international flights, the light rail, economic self reliance and urban renewal. Higher education to advance the Knowledge Capital, social inclusion, tax reform and the Access Canberra one stop shop for business with extra efforts at cutting red tape are all positives.
He wants to make it happen and he’s not afraid to make the difficult decisions. Business needs to be on board with all the positives our city needs to be even better than the most “liveable in the world”.
