Commonwealth Games ‘will boost job creation’

The Gold Coast will host the Commonwealth Games

Gold Coast apprenticeships could receive a boost from the 2018 Commonwealth Games, with Queensland’s tourism minister confirming numerous jobs will be created.

Jann Stuckey said the state government has been “working tirelessly” to develop the Commonwealth Games legacy plan, which will ensure the benefits of the sporting phenomenon go beyond the actual event.

“The Gold Coast will be the major beneficiary of legacy development; however the Games will provide significant opportunities for communities across the state,” she commented.

“Already we know the Gold Coast will benefit from upgrades to facilities, but in time the program will identify additional areas where we want to guarantee ongoing benefits.”

Ms Stuckey said there are plans to transform the Games Village into part of the health and knowledge precinct after the event has wrapped up, a scheme that will provide more jobs and boost the economy.

The Newman government plans to release the Legacy Strategy and Action Plan later this year, which will detail a number of initiatives already being developed across sectors in the community.

To ensure the maximum benefits of the Commonwealth Games are realised, Ms Stuckey highlighted the need for collaboration between the state government, local governments, industry and businesses.
