The Property Council have joined the cross-industry Queensland Response and Recovery Coalition (QRRC) to provide strategic advice to government during the COVID-19 crisis.

The QRRC is a collective of industry and peak bodies seeking to inform decision makers in areas such as planning, policy, and investment to guide Queensland’s economic recovery.

Seven of the group’s 21 members recently wrote a letter to Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, outlining the need to establish an economic recovery taskforce to leverage the private sector’s input in the COVID-19 response.

Similar taskforces have been established interstate and seek to utilise the deep reserves of corporate knowledge and expertise that the private sector can draw on.  A collective response informed by the private sector, government, industry associations, and trade unions will be the most rounded and effective in supporting Queensland’s economic rebuild.
