The future for Queensland’s forest and timber industry?Timber Queensland and the Queensland Government have undertaken to develop a Forest and Timber Industry Plan that will establish a road map for the future of Queensland’s forest and timber industry from 2012 - 2040. If you’ve got some ideas about the challenges facing industry and ways to manage them this is an opportunity to have a say.
Development of the Plan is one of the initiatives in the Queensland Government’s July to December 2012 Action Plan to grow a four pillar economy. There are three key inputs shaping Industry Plan content - results of the industry survey, direct consultation with key industry organisations, industry specialists and individual businesses and a vision and planning forum involving invited industry leaders.
These inputs will be crafted into a Draft Industry Plan that will focus on detailing a vision for the industry in 2040, identifying the challenges to be faced by businesses - both now and in the future – and determining what actions are needed to address those challenges. This draft will form the basis for more extensive consultation with interested parties and the resultant Forest and Timber Industry Plan will be completed by the end of 2012.
The survey represents an opportunity for all interested parties to have their say about what the future of the Queensland forest and timber industry should look like, what are the key issues facing the individual business and the broader forest and timber industry, and importantly, what can be done about it!
