Queensland Premier Campbell Newman says the state’s tourism industry will reap rewards of the political summit beyond the length of the two-day event.
“In the very short term, over the next 12 to 18 months, we will see more tourists come into this state…because suddenly it is on people’s international radars,” Mr Newman said.
He said Queensland’s energy and agriculture industries would also benefit from the long-lasting effects of the G20.
“It is about the coals, the gas, exports from this state and other minerals and also in the medium to longer term will be agricultural investment….[and] jobs,” Mr Newman said.
