Queensland reaffirms commitment to Adani’s biz
The Premier of Queensland, Annastacia Palaszczuk, has affirmed her government’s commitment to the $16.5 billion Carmichael mine project, a mine proposed by Adani Mining, a part of global integrated infrastructure conglomerate, Adani Group.
“My visit here shows that Queensland supports the Adani project for its potential to create many jobs for regional Queensland and will also help boost the Indian economy. Queensland will also be part of the solar project of Adani and we are delighted to be part of Adani in that project too,” Palaszczuk said.
Adani Group on Friday hosted a high level delegation led by Annastacia Palaszczuk, Premier of Queensland, Australia at Mundra Port.
“Indians are a great community in Australia and the Indo-Australian relations are growing from strength to strength. The Australian Prime Minister will also be visiting India shortly and that shows the significance of the relationship,” she added.
The project involves construction of a near-400km rail line from the Carmichael mine site to the Adani owned and operated bulk coal-loading facility at Abbott Point near Bowen.
Adani Group ventured into Australia commenced in 2010 with the purchase of the Greenfield Carmichael Coal Mine in the Galilee Basin, Central Queensland, and the Port of Abbot Point near Bowen in North Queensland.
Last year, the Queensland state’s department of environment and heritage protection (EHP) issued a final environmental authority (EA) for Adani’s Carmichael Mine project in the Galilee Basin. The EA application was vigorously assessed by the department and acted on recommendations made by the land court.
