FIRST TOWNSVILLE NAIF LOAN FINALLY ANNOUNCED

The Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) has finally announced its first investment decision in Townsville.

This is good news, but what took so bloody long?

There are almost 10,000 unemployed people in Townsville who have been waiting more than three years for Turnbull to deliver one project from the NAIF in North Queensland.

Turnbull needs to pull his finger out and make sure that it doesn’t take another three years to fund the next project.

Labor welcomes the new funding for JCU – we want to see jobs and investment in Townsville and we want to see the NAIF succeed.

Hopefully this is the first of many projects to be funded in Townsville.
