One of our key economic drivers for the region, the Port of Bundaberg, will be showcased at a Luncheon hosted by Bundaberg and District Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC).
GPC Business Operations Manager Andrew Davis and GPC Bundaberg Port Manager Jason Pascoe will address the lunch meeting, where they’ll highlight opportunities to export and import products through the Gladstone and Bundaberg Ports.
Bundaberg Port Manager Jason Pascoe says both Ports hold great potential for the growth of local businesses.
"GPC has made great progress in attracting new business and pursuing opportunities that can benefit businesses based in the Wide Bay and Burnett region, such as the commencement of a regular containerised liner service through the Port of Gladstone and the development of new bulk trades through the Port of Bundaberg in recent years.” Mr Pascoe said.
"The next step is to look at ways in which we can assist regionally-based business and industry to capitalise on the focus that the Port is gaining” Mr Pascoe said.
"We are keen to engage with local business operators to assist the future direction of the Port and its priorities, and work through any constraints and challenges where possible.”
Bundaberg Chamber President Yale Morgan said it will be a great opportunity for local businesses to find out about the Bundaberg Port and the opportunities.
"The recent announcement of the Bundaberg State Development Area with a key focus on the Port of Bundaberg, makes it the perfect time for regional business operators to get a better understanding of how these key port assets can help grow our region’s businesses through better access to export and import markets,” Mr Morgan said.
The Lunch Presentation will be held Friday 22nd June at Rowers on the River.
