Darren Chester and Keith Pitt promoted to cabinet in reshuffle – politics live | Australia news

But we also know that this coronavirus is going to have an impact. It’s going to have an impact on the Queensland economy and a very large impact on the Australian economy.

So yesterday I convened large members of the stakeholder groups across Queensland, from the Gold Coast, from far north Queensland, from a whole different range of sectors, from resources to tourism, to seafood, to international education.

And what they told me very clearly is that they need assistance and support, and they need it now. And they want the state and the commonwealth to work together. So, that’s why I wrote to the prime minister, in the spirit of cooperation, to say, ‘Let’s treat this huge impact on our economy just as we would a natural disaster, like a cyclone or a bushfire.’

We need that help and we need to work together, and we need to contribute, I believe, equal share, like we do with natural disasters.
