Message from the President President: Sam Marino

The Cairns Chamber of Commerce is the peak body for business representation in the Cairns region and one of the largest and strongest regional chambers in Australia. We constructively and collaboratively drive business growth outcomes for members and in the best interests of the Cairns business community. We have prioritised Cairns business issues on behalf of members since 1909, and will continue to be the only Cairns based business representative body that is exclusively Cairns focussed. We facilitate business success for our members, through the development of a strong and resilient regional economy, through the development of a constructive business environment, and by being the voice of business. On behalf of our members, we strategically facilitate the growth of industry, support infrastructure development, and lead changes that drive increased business productivity, employment, trade and investment. We work in partnership with our members, partner stakeholders and all levels of government to constructively create conditions for business success in the Cairns region. We have four strategic objectives that we are constantly pursuing in the interests of our members and for the benefit of everyone in our region: 1. Drive business success and generate prosperity for members 2. Stimulate economic growth and industry diversification 3. Positively position Cairns business capabilities on a national / international basis 4. Member service delivery optimisation The Cairns Chamber as we know it today was formed with the adoption of a constitution on 8 October 1909 when the population of Cairns was 5,000. The Manager of the local branch of the Queensland National Bank, James Alison, accepted nomination as the Chamber president at time of constitution, which saw the introduction of monthly meetings, and an immediate drive to recruit new members. Land issues, potential trade with Papua New Guinea, the need for

4

better courthouse services, fishing, timber and sugar industry problems were addressed by the Chamber during its first official year. As the new President taking over from our former President, Ron Tong, who also followed and a long line of people who freely given their time to the Cairns Chamber, I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to be at the helm of an organisation that is unquestionably doing great things right across our community. I hope all members can see that the Cairns Chamber of Commerce is an organisation that is growing from strength to strength – and since establishment in 1909, we are still passionate about making a positive difference for business, trade and industry in our region on behalf of members. As a team, consisting of our Management Committee, our CEO, Deb Hancock and our Operational Team, we have invested our time heavily in nurturing relationships with members, domestic and international investors, government and partner stakeholders. With the opening of our PNG and Hong Offices last year, we are now seeing the benefits of these investments returning rewards for our members. From an international trade and business perspective, the Cairns region is now widely recognised as being ‘open for business’ thanks to our international business delegations and our ongoing commitment to the development of long term, mutually beneficial relationships with regard to trade, commerce and investment. We look forward to continuing our work, in collaboration with all of our members, as we grow our region from strength to strength into a very prosperous future.

Progressive years ahead As we begin the 2015-2016 financial year, Cairns has reason to be positive, with business confidence returning, steady growth in our tourism sector, and a financially strong Council that is focussed on delivering to its community. The Cairns region sits on the cusp of a new dawn but our success is by no means guaranteed as we rely upon policy decisions and support from other levels of Government that promise to propel the North into the future it deserves. I am encouraged by the Federal Government’s White Paper on Developing Northern Australia and the commitment of the Prime Minister to it which translates into a strong and clear statement that the Government is determined to advance the economic and social wellbeing of communities in Northern Australia. As a Council, we are committed to progress the intent of the White Paper and will continue to do everything in our power to encourage and support investment and re-activate local industry to create jobs and opportunities, especially for our younger generations. Our focus should particularly be on the construction industry with a view to returning a crane to the skyline of Cairns as a priority. This financial year, Council will inject more than $220 million into the local economy on materials and services associated with undertaking this year’s $142.7 million capital works program and for maintenance, renewals and other services delivered to the community. By the end of the end of the 2015-16 financial year, Cairns Regional Council will have delivered just under half a billion dollars in capital works on the ground, without incurring additional debt. Our debt level per capita ($521) is the second lowest of 15 comparable Councils in Queensland. This year’s Budget has been structured to ensure that critical new infrastructure will be delivered to the community, with $13 million committed to The Precinct project which will deliver a new Cairns Performing Arts Centre and the redeveloped Munro Martin Parklands. This project has been a long time in the planning but we believe we have got it right in terms of it being in the right location and at a cost the community can afford without unduly burdening ratepayers in years to come. I sincerely believe that it is a project which deserves financial support by both the Federal and State Governments and we will continue discussions to secure that support. Other major projects funded this year include the redevelopment of Tobruk Memorial Pool ($13m), upgrade to 11

Aumuller Street ($7.8m); Stage 1 of Shields Street Heart project and School of Arts refurbishment ($12.4m); and the development of three master-planned sporting precincts ($5.6m) at Walker Road, Alley Park and Martyn Street Reserve. Council has also allocated $3.7 million to commence works associated with the initial stages of securing Cairns’ future water supply as part of the Water Security Implementation Plan which identifies a preferred strategy for water management and infrastructure to ensure our city will have ample water to service a growing population and expanding industry in the decades ahead. To help kick start the construction industry, Council will commence a sewer rising main to progress the new sub-division of Mt Peter at a cost of $3.3 million, with $13 million committed next year. We have again committed $2 million to Tourism Tropical North Queensland to boost marketing of the region. An additional $1 million in marketing funds can be leveraged by TTNQ to secure matching funding from other levels of government or the private sector. It is essential that we continue to support the industry’s efforts to tap into the lucrative Chinese market and secure a dedicated carrier which can provide direct air links between Cairns and China. As a city, we on the cusp of seeing a number of significant projects commence that will add to our tourism product and boost new housing stock including the multiple mixed-use tower development in Spence Street (Nova 8); the Cairns Aquarium; the C3 project in the CBD; the mixed residential Botanica development at Caravonica; and the Adventures Waters Water Park planned for Smithfield. The respective developers of these projects need the right signals from Government to provide the confidence for the projects to proceed. As a Council, we will continue to manage the city’s finances responsibly and promote economic growth by delivering a balanced budget, maintaining a strong credit rating and managing a sustainable level of borrowings commensurate with a growing city. Through strong fiscal discipline, we will finish the 2014-15 year with an operating surplus in the order of $8 million, bringing the total surplus over the past two budget cycles to $15.5 million. If the organisation continues to be prudent in its planning and expenditure, financial modelling forecasts over the next decade provide for capital expenditure of approximately $1.4 billion and annual rate increases in the order of 2% - 3.5%. This augers well for the future of Cairns and the region and positions us to capitalise on opportunities. I believe that we are ready to respond with a common voice and work collaboratively with our community to realise our true potential.

The Hon Warren Entsch MP

‘Vision’ is a word that’s bandied around a lot, but sometimes it’s important to stop and consider the actual meaning - ‘the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom’. When I think about Cairns and envision the region in 50 years, I see us now at the tipping point of a change in fortunes. We all know it’s been tough over much of the last decade. For many local businesses, it’s now a case of taking some strength from that old cliché that whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Fortunately, there’s a change well and truly in the air. We’ve seen Aquis receive Federal Government approval, construction has started on Stage 1 of the Aspial development and is imminent for the Adventure Waters Water Park and the Cairns Aquarium, while Cairns Regional Councils’ plans for The Precinct are well advanced. In the broader region, the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas refurbishment is underway and the Mt Emerald Wind Farm and the Cook Shire Solar Project are waiting on final regulatory approvals. Solid work is proceeding on the world-class Mossman Botanical Garden and the IFED, Olive Vale and Crystalbrook Station agricultural developments. Other projects – if not shovel-ready – are waiting on investment that is no longer ‘pie in the sky’ given the global investment climate – think Ella Bay, Nullinga Dam and the hydro-electric energy storage project at the old Kidston gold mine. Meanwhile, we can’t afford to abandon our vision for the dredging of Trinity Inlet; let’s continue to look at the East Trinity site as a solution for dredge spoil that will cater to the future population growth in the region. In addition, there’s no doubt that local residents, industries, businesses and community sectors are already reaping the benefit of a host of government policies. We’re seeing better mobile phone reception and a faster and 19

cheaper NBN. A focus on creating a new industry in tropical sports conditioning, Green Army teams on the ground, the biggest investment ever seen in the Great Barrier Reef and a determination to bolster aquaculture. When it comes to business, we’re cutting red tape and focusing on jobs – particularly supporting younger people entering the workforce and older people getting back into the workforce, together with tax cuts and deductions that will benefit every business. The most significant policy in my view though is the White Paper on Northern Australia. What we’ve got here is unprecedented - the blueprint for the North is now locked into policy for current and future Australian Governments, who will need to take this into consideration when making decisions that impact on the region. Roads, rail, ports, water, energy, tropical expertise, insurance, land tenure, tourism, agriculture, concessional loans, fisheries, indigenous enterprise, investment…. It’s all in here. We’ve even got a dedicated Red Tape Repeal Day for Northern Australia slated for 2016. It’s now up to us to be innovative and capture the opportunities that are going to be presented, to leverage further investment and further development into the future. A key factor that will enable this to happen is the alliance between peak organisations such as the Cairns Chamber of Commerce, Advance Cairns, Forum 4 Business Growth and TTNQ. Overall, I think we’re in a very good place – we’ve got a fantastic vision for where we want to be, the courage to be making things happen, together with the human capital and a positive investment environment to get us there. The Hon Warren Entsch MP Federal Member for Leichhardt Chair of the Joint Select Committee on Northern Australia

The Cairns Post

133 Years Young The Cairns Post has been informing and representing the Cairns community for 133 years, it is the longest running continuous business in the city; only six years younger than the city itself, and is a founding member of the Cairns Chamber of Commerce. In all that rich history in news media, now is a time of unprecedented opportunity for improvement and enhancement in the way news is delivered. Change is being enthusiastically pursued and embraced. Our award-winning teams of local journalists, photographers, sales and marketing staff, more than 100 in total, are taking full advantage of cutting-edge systems and software to assist them to deliver a fresh, modern product, whether it be online or in print. The Cairns Post focus on the reader is exemplified this year as we relaunch our weekly community newspaper, Cairns Sun. Cairns Sun has always enjoyed the loyal affection of our readers as a rich source of local news, issues, events and information. The new format makes it an even brighter reflection of the vibrant and lively Cairns lifestyle, and distribution encompasses multiple channels and

24

platforms to ensure effortless access to Cairns Sun Another new venture we are delighted to present in partnership with Cairns Airport is Passport to Tropical North Queensland, a premium visitor guide which is now available free of charge to all visitors passing through Cairns Airport. This magazine provides comprehensive easy access to an extensive network of local tourism and hospitality providers, enhancing our visitors’ experiences and promoting local business. As well as The Cairns Post and cairnspost.com.au, our commitment to Far North Queensland reaches extensively into the regional areas, which are served by the Atherton Tablelander, Tablelands Advertiser, Port Douglas and Mossman Gazette, and the Innisfail Advocate. While the year ahead for Cairns will no doubt be filled with highs and lows, progress and set-backs, our readers can be secure in the knowledge that The Cairns Post will deliver.

Tapping into the visitor economy The economic report cards for Cairns have been looking increasingly positive, but will that growth continue in 2015-16 and bring with it more jobs and revenue for our community? Tropical North Queensland’s economic future will be strongly influenced by the strength of the visitor economy, according to research by Cummings Economics in 2015. Tourism currently earns $3 billion for the regional economy and contributes about 16.3 per cent of the Gross Regional Product. This makes it the largest earner of income for the region when compared with our next largest industry sectors, the primary industries at about $2 billion and mining at about $1 billion. The visitor economy is estimated to provide 18.8 per cent of the employment in Tropical North Queensland with 17,500 people directly employed and a further 7000 indirectly employed by tourism. These figures, which have been compiled by Cummings Economics using data from Tourism Research Australia, Census data and National Tourism Satellite Account estimates for visitor counts and industry employment, emphasise the value of tourism to our regional economy.

The research also shows tourism is a catalyst for the development of many industries in Tropical North Queensland. In fact, the visitor economy directly and indirectly boosts the Gross Regional Product and employment capability of one-third of the region’s industries by more than 10 per cent. As expected, tourism contributes a massive 72.8 per cent to the value of the accommodation, food and drink industry, but there are surprises like administrative support services which gains 21.2 per cent of its Gross Regional Product from tourism. This list of industries which benefit from the visitor economy includes manufacturing, communications, health and community services, defence and safety, and the primary industries of agriculture, forestry and fishing. This means the tourism industry is working hard to keep jobs secure for the tradespeople, technicians, nurses, immigration agents, farmers, secretaries, lawyers and shop assistants who work in these industries in Tropical North Queensland. We are investing not only in our future, but in the future of our community and the next generation by striving to grow expenditure for our region and create jobs for our children.

A WIN WIN FOR THE REGION

• C ai r n s C h a m b e r Of C o m m e r ce


Yes, the economic report cards look good and in the past 12 months we have experienced many of the right ingredients for tourism growth: An increase in direct flights to Cairns; the devaluation of the Australian dollar; global attention following a series of well publicised international events; and a renewed investment in tourism infrastructure. This positive news for tourism is positive news for our local economy, but there are a couple of red flags. Tropical North Queensland is not the only destination to realise how the visitor economy brings growth to nearly every industry in a community. Competition for the visitor dollar is fierce and we are up against destinations with greater marketing budgets. The local tourism industry is proactive and invests heavily in marketing activities through their own

29

campaigns, by supporting destination campaigns and through membership with Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ). We use this member investment to leverage further investment from our major partners Tourism Australia, Tourism and Events Queensland, Cairns Regional Council and Cairns Airport. If the many businesses which benefit from the visitor economy add their support to the industry through membership investment it will put TTNQ in a much stronger position to attract more marketing funds to grow visitation to our destination further. Growing visitation will in turn grow the many industries of Tropical North Queensland – it is a win for those industries, a win for tourism and a win for our regional economy.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES Successfully accessing these international markets is changing

Peter Maletz Hanrick Curran Chartered Accountants

It’s important to remain abreast of the developments impacting buyer behaviour, understand the local market needs and adjust for the changing international regulatory landscape that will impact international business in the future.

Chinese ecommerce ecosystem removes barriers to entry China is now an open market with a strong appetite for a variety of Australian goods including premium food products, health food, wine and luxury western brands. Access to the Chinese consumer in the past has been dominated by a raft of middle men who erode profitability. However the ecommerce ecosystem is rapidly changing with the Chinese consumers embracing the likes of Alibaba.com, which is a collection of platforms facilitating transactions between business and consumers in Australia and China. The traditional barriers to trading in China are shrinking with a well supported ecommerce environment. Traditional shopping malls are being transformed with the majority of floor space now dominated by hospitality and services tenants and the emergence of more “experiencing” stores that offer consumers the ability to ‘try’ before placing a ‘buy’ online.

The key elements to be successful in China still revolve around the right partnerships The key elements required for an Australian Small to Medium Enterprises to be successful in China still revolve around the right partnerships, including: - Access to the ecommerce ecosystem - Banking relationships to capture and repatriate cash - Facilitation of distribution points and access to Chinese logistics capabilities - Structuring and taxation management across borders. Moving east, another international market presents with further expansion potential, albeit demand looks quite different as do the challenges.

Substantial opportunities for Australian businesses still exist in PNG As the world grapples with fuel and energy shortages, countries like PNG, with huge deposits of minerals and hydrocarbons, are benefitting greatly. Their resource-based and large-scale projects demand expertise across a number of disciplines which are in short supply domestically. This shortfall creates a substantial opportunity for Australian businesses across a range of areas, most notably: - Mining & Petroleum services - Engineers & large machinery - Labour hire and training providers - Commercial and Residential Construction - Safety Management services With the Queensland mining cycle in a tightening phase, the PNG market represents growth opportunities for businesses to redeploy skills and specialist labour that have low demand domestically which makes it an attractive international market worth exploring.

Several impediments to doing business in PNG remain Whilst PNG is only an hour and a half by plane from Cairns, the ease of doing business in PNG for the inexperienced stops there. PNG has a reputation for unreliable administration capabilities which can result in challenges when doing business such as delays in obtaining necessary approvals to start up a business and obtaining work permit/visa approvals for expatriates with specialist skill sets.

Challenges can be overcome with the right advisory team experienced in doing business in PNG The right advisory team can mitigate these obstacles so Australian businesses can access the rich opportunities that lie beyond the Coral Sea. Several key competencies need to be demonstrated by an advisory team capable of successfully supporting new business expansion into PNG. They require: - a sustained and continuous history of doing business in PNG - a solid track record in completing projects involving PNG government liaison - local office presence to facilitate day to day administration - demonstrated understanding of the regulatory process for new business approvals - sensitivity to cultural differences

Support is available to explore new markets An effective approach to exploring the possibilities for business in China and PNG is to consider the Cairns Chamber of Commerce delegations. Hanrick Curran are advisers to the Chamber for the international delegations so members will be well supported with specialist international business advice and networks. Now, more than ever taking business beyond Australian shores is within reach. 35

CAIRNS RESURGENT N E W E C O N O M I C F U N D A M E N TA L S

After a period of slower growth, underlying economic conditions are now in place for the Cairns Economy to surge back to strong growth levels. The Cairns’ economy is surging back. The Cairns region has been a leading growth area over a long period of time, in Australia, in regional Queensland and across northern Australia (see separate story). Its long-term growth was seriously slowed over the post-GFC period, particularly by the extremely high Australian dollar. NEW ECONOMIC FUNDAMENTALS

EXPANDING OUTSIDE EARNINGS

However as Cairns based economist and long-time adviser to the Cairns Chamber of Commerce points out, the economic fundamentals for Cairns have changed dramatically over the past two years, starting with the collapse of commodity prices (mainly minerals) since 2012. The massive effects on investment and employment in mining is tending to depress the national economy. At a government level, this situation would normally result in moves to increase the deficit. However governments at state and federal levels have failed to rein in the deficits during good times and government debt is now at a level where scope for a further major increase in deficits is limited. Thus the Reserve Bank is taking the only action available and cutting interest rates. With no bounce back in commodity prices prospective, little room for government to further stimulate, we are looking at a period of low interest rates. Historically the Australian dollar has tended to fluctuate with commodity prices. But there was a lag in exchange rates falling, when commodity prices were falling in 2012, and it was only when the RBA started cutting interest rates strongly at a time when the US was signalling an end of quantitative easing and prospective rises in interest rates, that the dollar started falling back strongly against the US dollar. With both commodity prices down and comparative low interest rates, we are looking at a period of a lower dollar.

Although the regional economy can be affected by short-term movements, the major factor driving the economy’s long-term growth is its “outside earnings”; its exports of goods and services to the rest of Australia and the world The lower Australian dollar and lower costs of fuel, lower costs of capital due to lower interest rates, are greatly improving international competitiveness of the region’s industries and leading to a resurgence of outside earnings across a broad front. While Cairns is a major tourism destination in Australian terms and tourism extremely important to the economy, it is important to realise that the region has a diversified base of outside earnings.

TOURISM BUILDING UP All the indications are that the slide in tourism following the GFC, critical loss of air services to Japan and due to the extremely high dollar, bottomed in 2010 with numbers starting to rebound in 2011.

CAIRNS RESURGENT While airport figures indicate that the growth rate moderated in 2014, latest figures are indicating a take off again especially as new air services to Singapore, Bali, Manila and Auckland come into place. Extremely important is the burgeoning impact of the growing tourism market out of China to Australia with Cairns’ share moving up rapidly from 7 per cent in 2002 to over 140,000 (22 per cent) in 2013-14.

While a recent dip in world sugar prices is going to cause some shortterm pain, the reality is that sugar production in recent years in the region has expanded. The extent to which a major new agricultural sector has been added in recent decades is indicated by the rise in gross value of fruit production in the region. GROSS VALUE OF FRUIT PRODUCTION CAIRNS REGION

Source: Cummings Economics from ABS data

Cattle numbers and output in the region have increased substantially in recent decades with superior cattle breeds for tropical areas and investment in management. Currently cattle prices are sky high but this is being offset by the current drought extending into the Far North’s western areas. But with the region accounting for 26 per cent of Australia’s water runoff and over 60 per cent of water runoff in Queensland, the Cairns region’s potential for agricultural expansion is far from fully developed. A major new expansion phase is taking place with cropping moving out beyond the tropical coast and Tablelands into the major catchments of the Gulf rivers, up into the Cooktown district and the Peninsula. The Strathmore and the IFED projects promise to see major expansion of sorghum, cattle and sugar production in the Gulf and possibly cotton growing. Horticultural expansion has seen value of crop production in the Cooktown district go past $40 million per annum and Olive Vale is likely to see major sorghum production develop in the area. The $200 million upgrading of the Peninsula Development Road will open up prospects for development of two million ha of agricultural soils in Cape York.

Mining Resurgent

Growing confidence in the Cairns region’s ability to become a major player in the growth of Chinese tourism to Australia is evident in the $8bn Aquis proposal. Agriculture – A Long-Term Growth Sector Any view that agriculture is a stagnant or declining sector, does not fit the reality of the Cairns/Tropical Far North regional economy. Year-to-year, growth has fluctuated, but the figures indicate an upward trend in real terms.

GROSS VALUE OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION $M

Just as the mineral prices boom did not provide the stimulus that occurred in other regions, the Cairns region is not being hurt like those regions based on Townsville, Mackay and Rockhampton. Although smaller in mining, the region has a diversity of deposits. In fact, the region took its knock in 2012 with the collapse of Kagara. The region’s mining is now on the way back up with a lower dollar and lower fuel prices helping. Bauxite volumes from Weipa have been expanding. Employment at Kagara’s former Mt Garnet operations are back up to about 130 employees. Consolidated Tin are still planning to get their tin and magnetite operations up at Mt Garnet. Tungsten is being mined at Wolfram Camp and Mt Carbine and the Watershed project is looking promising. The wheel has turned again and South of Embley bauxite project looks like proceeding, with Aurukun in the background and Metro Mining (Cape Alumina) near Skardon River.

SEALING THE HANN HIGHWAY OPENING NEW COMMERCIAL TIES WITH MELBOURNE AND ADELAIDE After years of lobbying by various organisations in the region, including the Cairns Chamber of Commerce, the final 100km unsealed section of a direct road route to Melbourne and Adelaide is due to be sealed over the next few years. Geographically, Cairns and the Tablelands lie directly north of Melbourne. Road routes that follow the coast via Brisbane and Sydney take traffic out hundreds of kilometres to the east. The direct north south route via the Hann Highway link through Hughenden, Barcaldine, Charleville, Cobar, Griffith to Melbourne, cuts off approximately 800km compared to the coastal routes. It is a route that is highly freight efficient enabling triple road trains to pass down as far as Burke in New South Wales. It is largely a flat lightly trafficked route and less subject to flooding than coastal routes. Apart from cost savings in landing far northern produce in Melbourne and Adelaide, and even to some extent in Sydney and Perth, it opens up prospects of cheaper transport of goods from these areas direct into the North. The link provides more direct tourism links between the iconic areas of the Far North and the Central West Waltzing Matilda country and potentially in the future, via improved roads links to the Alice Springs Red Centre area.

A NEW SURGE OF INVESTMENT Against the foregoing background, a new multi billion dollar surge of investment in the region is taking place. Councils in the region (in Cairns and outside of Cairns), are reporting a surge in development proposals and building approvals, especially in the last six months. The steady climb in visitor numbers has seen the losses of the post-GFC period made up. With little new accommodation stock coming on stream in recent years and occupancy rates climbing, major expenditure is taking place on refurbishment and record prices paid for hotel properties (eg. Pullman International). To cater for the burgeoning Chinese and for other markets, the Aquis project is proposing an $8bn investment in hotel rooms phased over a ten-year period that will see the current 10,000 hotel motel rooms in the region move up to about 15,000 – 16,000, an increase not dissimilar to that which occurred in the region in the late 1980s. With new construction activity down during recent years but population continuing to grow, albeit at a rate less then trend, a need for new residential facilities has been building up. Major new projects announced have included the Nova 8 project $400 million, the C3 project $550 million, and the Botanica project at Caravonica. New residential development in the Mt Peter area has been put underway. New infrastructure facility/attractions announcements have included the Aquarium, Cairns Airport long-term expansion program of 1 BILLIONS. Bill Cummings’ full address was delivered to the Cairns Chamber of Commerce luncheon and placed on the Chamber’s website www.cairnschamberr.com.au and that of Cummings Economics www.cummings.net.au

CAIRNS RESURGENT DEEPENING CHANNEL TO HAVE MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR BENEFITS FOR THE CITY Cairns Chamber of Commerce continues to have as one of its priority projects, the deepening of the channel into Cairns seaport. Z Cairns economist, Bill Cummings, says that the potential benefits for the city’s economy and business community are very substantial. The benefits derive from the greater efficiencies a deeper channel will bring. The first efficiency gain relates to the increasing number of large cruise ships visiting the region that currently are forced to stand offshore at Yorkeys Knob and transfer passengers in ships’ tenders or hired catamarans. Apart from the costs of the shore transfers and transport of many of the passengers into the city, there is the cost in wasted time for passengers. A proportion of passengers will not disembark the ship and at times, in bad weather, the shore transfers can even be cancelled at short notice. While at sea, the ship needs to keep operational with crew on duty, with many involved in the shore transfer process. By contrast, when at the wharf, almost all passengers will disembark the ship where they are immediately in the main shopping and tour base area. Crew can have time off, and the ship can take on stores. Ships will not stand offshore for two days; at the wharf, the visit can be easily extended. Estimated efficiency savings for the large visiting cruise ships that currently cannot get into the port are estimated at about $70 per passenger and on a cost benefit basis, makes the project highly worthwhile, with major potential revenue to the port to support the investment. But the efficiency benefits do not stop there. Currently the larger cargo vessels carrying fuel and fertilisers in and sugar out cannot get into and leave the port fully loaded, even at high tide. This, results in a need to visit another port to partially unload or to top up.

50

Efficiency benefits from this alone justifies something of the order of a capital investment of $60 million. On top of this again with cruising developing strongly to ports to the immediate north in the Papua New Guinea Pacific area and South East Asian waters, Cairns offers a much more efficient home-porting location than Brisbane and Sydney. On the basis of one large cruise ship seasonally home-ported by 2021 and two by 2031, efficiency benefits justify further major investment in port upgrading. These efficiency savings will result in strong increases in cruise ship visits to Cairns over and above what would happen if transfers from offshore continued. The resulting estimated six million additional passengers with associated spending by crew and the ships themselves, plus the strong additional spending generated by homeporting vessels, is estimated to inject into the city’s economy, something of the order of $5bn over a 25-year period (or when discounted back to present values at a 7 per cent discount rate, of the order of $1.3bn). This amount that does not take into account additional benefits from larger cargo vessels being able to use the port and potentially to the efficiencies of the port as a naval base., With offshore placement of spoil, the project romps home as a viable and highly worthwhile project. This having been ruled out, the way forward now for the city is to find innovative solutions to economically place spoil onshore to create reclaimed land with a value over time that will offset the additional costs. This is not new to the city. Most of its Portsmith industrial area sits on land reclaimed in the past with dredge spoil, including the naval base and the sheds in which multi-million dollars in ships have been built and maintained, and supporting a marine sector that directly employs over 4,000.

HANRICK CURRAN Connecting Cairns business to international markets

The Cairns Chamber of Commerce turn to Hanrick Curran when Cairns business owners are looking to capitalise on opportunities in neighbouring international markets. As a gateway to markets like Papua New Guinea, the proximity of additional business opportunity is so close, yet many businesses perceive this market as inaccessible due to the administrative complexities of doing business there. For this reason, the Chamber invited Hanrick Curran to be the China and PNG Delegation’s International Business advisor. Hanrick Curran is an independent chartered accounting and consulting firm with 11 partners, more than 100 staff and offices in Brisbane, Cairns, Port Moresby and Lae, PNG. The firm has a 30 year history in delivering specialist services, specifically business advisory, international business, tax consulting and audit to clients across Queensland, Australia and into select international neighbouring markets. Hanrick Curran Partner Peter Maletz says negotiating regulatory authorities is the major challenge he sees businesses face in trying to access the PNG market.

“Unfortunately the Investment Promotion Authority, Internal Revenue Commission, Departments PANTONE Cool Gray 8 C of Labour & Industrial Relations and Foreign Affairs & Immigration need to be carefully navigated with full visibility of the prerequisite steps PANTONE Cool Gray 4 C to ensure timely access to approvals, permits and visas.”

Tony Canning Senior Associate

Peter Maletz Partner Hanrick Curran has affiliate offices in Port Moresby and Lae and more than 50 years of collective knowledge and networks to draw on when smoothing the path for Queensland firms to do business in Papua New Guinea.

These networks are maintained with regular and active involvement in shaping the development of the cross border trade and investment, with Peter holding a board seat on the Australia PNG Business Council. He is also an active member in the Bilateral Business and Officials Working Group involving DFAT, Border Security, Senior PNG and Australian Government officials, Australian and PNG Business leaders with cross border business activity and local business representatives established to enhance trade between Australia and PNG. Tony Canning, Senior Associate at Hanrick Curran who is now based in Cairns fondly recalls his seven years in PNG as a Chartered Accountant. “The business opportunity in PNG in the right sectors including mining, construction, labour hire and specialist training providers is exceptional,” he says. “But capitalising on it, as a business owner inexperienced in the PNG market, is near impossible. Being on the ground, knowing the market, having the networks and understanding how the system works is invaluable. I have picked up the pieces for many clients who won contracts but initially struggled to navigate the administration approval process to get on the soil to deliver”. Tony says lining up an experienced advisory team with demonstrated history in doing business in PNG is crucial prior to negotiating contracts. “The key areas to be addressed prior to leaving Australian shores include the PNG approvals and also the structuring of entities performing the international work to protect Australian-based business assets and minimise tax which can become complex when foreign earnings are prevalent.” Tony recommends local business owners in the right sectors seriously consider how their business could achieve revenue growth accessing the PNG market, but to surround themselves with the right team of YEAR Professional Advisors prior to entering into any contractual relationships. ANNIVERSARY The Cairns Chamber of Commerce PNG Delegation in November is an excellent vehicle to explore the market’s potential.

DIXON HOMES Andrew Thomas has been the Managing Director of the Dixon Homes franchise in Cairns for the past 20 years. Over the years, Andrew has worked hard to build the brand in Cairns and Townsville and credits Dixon Homes’ success to his experienced and professional team who make the process of building a home stress‑free and rewarding for new home owners. Undoubtedly, building a home is one of life’s major milestones and Dixon Homes prides itself on being able to offer its clients an extensive range of homes from the convenience of house and land packages to a fully customised design. With new home prices ranging from $150K - $750K and over 2200+ designs available to choose from, the Dixon Homes team is specialised in helping clients to work within their budgets and to find a home that perfectly suits them and their lifestyle. Dixon Homes operates like a well-oiled machine and Andrew employs 16 permanent staff across Cairns and Townsville to keep those wheels turning. In the past 12 months, Dixon Homes has completed two major subdivision projects - Lakeside Village in Forest Gardens and Stage 1 of “Tranquillity” which is an exclusive, elevated development in Bentley Park. Stage 2 and Stage 3 of “Tranquillity” will be completed in the next 12 months and early sales and interest in both subdivisions indicate that confidence is growing and the demand is there. “The past 12 months have definitely been better than the previous 12 months” says Andrew and he expects that the lack of rental accommodation in Cairns, together with the low interest rates at present will see this trend continue with first home owners and investors finding it more economical to build new rather than buy existing. Dixon Homes is a major supporter of local industry and whilst it enjoys the benefits of a national buying power, the company is completely reliant on local trades, services and products in the region to design and construct over 70 new homes a year. It is these industry relationships that reinforces Andrew’s choice to be a member of the Cairns Chamber of Commerce. He believes that being a part of the Chamber is beneficial to gaining exposure for the Dixon Homes brand and provides him with networking opportunities. “It is a great way to meet other successful business owners from a range of industries to share experiences and to discuss the economic future of Cairns”.

LIVING DYNAMICS PTY LTD The Contract Angels The confusing world of contracts can be overwhelming for any business, but particularly so for those in building and construction. The industry is renowned for disputes over contractual rights and obligations, often leaving small businesses and subcontractors at the mercy of the fine print. Living Dynamics was established to help small to medium enterprise in the construction industry better understand potential risks and opportunities when entering into contracts. In Cairns, Living Dynamics’ ‘Contract Angels’ can also assist these operators when they’ve already committed to a contract. The Contract Angels provide a risk assessment and a detailed strategy on ongoing risk management for the company - and unlike some others, will stay with the company in a mentoring capacity. “We do that for as long as the company wishes or when we feel the company’s internal resources have gained the skill sets necessary to evaluate and manage commercial risk themselves,” says the Contract Angel, Gaye Hickey. The Contract Angels are supported locally and nationally by staff and other Angels who can bring unique skill sets to the client without burdening Living Dynamics FNQ with high overheads, making the service very competitive. Gaye personally brings more than 20 years’ experience as an industry professional in the residential and commercial building sectors. She also brings valuable experience in Contract Administration including administering minor and major works contracts, cash flows, cost reporting, risk management, procurement, programming and ensuring projects are delivered to achieve time, cost and quality objectives. When something goes awry, The Contract Angels also have the resources and experience to assist subcontractors caught in what Gaye calls ‘the trap’, helping to negotiate the best resolution possible. “Typically in close knit communities which experience a boom, an influx of national and international managing contractors arrive. While they often hire staff locally, they expect and demand compliance to their own standards which have over the years derisked much of their obligation down to the subcontractors,” Gaye explains. “We have dealt with the majority of the nationals and know intimately the expected risks they demand their subcontractors to absorb. The Angels have the tools to assess the likely cost of that risk to the subcontractor and either work with the subcontractor to ensure they have sufficient contingency to cover the risk or negotiate better terms with the nationals.” Living Dynamics believes its ability to offer a flexible and often remote suite of risk management tools is its crowning achievement, based on knowledge and the right application of readily available data rather than complex and expensive software. “Repeat business from our assistance in business improvement programs rather than just risk management is testimony to this.”

competitive open market, where the organisation will need to develop a more structured business approach to service delivery and customer service.

ARC Disability Services Inc is a community based organisation that provides support to adults and children with disabilities, their families and support networks in the Cairns and Far North region.

Anita Veivers, the CEO of ARC Disability Services Inc. has been with the organisation for 22 years, and is excited to be leading ARC through this change process.

Established in 1976, ARC Disability Services Inc. was originally the Noah’s Ark Toy Library, and was run by a committee of dedicated parents who recognised the need for educational toys for children who have disabilities at a time when integration was not the norm.

“We anticipate that we will grow significantly over the next three years as people who have disabilities gain more choice and control over their funding.”

Today, the organisation has evolved from its humble beginnings to a fully-fledged lead service provider, offering a full range of support services to almost 400 families on a regular basis, and employing over 150 people in a variety of roles in the Cairns region. Through the continued efforts of a dedicated Board, ARC Disability Services Inc. maintains a well-respected profile in the community and a reputation for quality service provision.

The new scheme will see rapid growth across Queensland in the disability services sector with the number of clients accessing disability services likely to grow from 45,000 to over 95,000 under the new scheme. “The National Insurance Scheme and the changes it will bring will create incredible growth, it is anticipated that there will be 13,000 additional staff required in this sector in Queensland alone.”

With the rollout of the National Disability Insurance scheme in 2016, ARC is preparing for the transition from a Governmentfunded organisation to a

however the organisation is looking forward to meeting the challenge head on, and will continue to offer a range of high-quality programs and services that provide learning experiences and teach life skills. These programs and services include innovative programs in visual and performing arts, lifestyle support to enable independent living, social support and respite services, the toy library and resource centre and social enterprise including, the new Cafe Connect located at The ARC Community Hub, on McNamara Street.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION

MacKillop Catholic College Principal, Luke Reed

Since its early beginnings in 1887 when the first Catholic school in the region was opened in Cooktown, Cairns Catholic Education has been delivering the consistently high standard of education that it is now renowned for in Far North Queensland. The Cairns Diocese covers Far North Queensland from Cardwell to the Torres Strait Islands and west to the Northern Territory border and includes the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Atherton Tablelands. With 27 Catholic schools and colleges servicing nearly 11,000 primary and high school students across our region, the Cairns Diocese is making a difference in the lives of the individual students and our wider community. With a vision for providing life-long and a quality Catholic education so that “students are able to reach their full potential through the enhancement of their educational, personal and spiritual dimensions”, it is no wonder that the demand for Catholic education is growing in our community. In 2016, the Cairns Diocese will open two new schools – St Joseph’s Parish School in Weipa and MacKillop Catholic College, Mount Peter (near Edmonton). A Flexi School with campuses at Manoora and Cooktown has opened in 2015 to cater for youth who are disengaged from mainstream education. Presently, 1 in 4 students in Far North Queensland attend a Catholic school and the Cairns Diocese employs more than 1,700 people across the region, making it one of the largest non-government employers in the North.

of the State. They deliver the Australian Curriculum and offer broad curriculum and co-curricular opportunities in well-resourced and technologically-equipped classrooms that have all of the requirements for contemporary learning in the 21st century. Yet with their distinctive mission, Catholic schools are Christ-centred communities based on gospel values. They acknowledge, promote and celebrate the God-given gifts of each individual so that they may achieve their potential. They also work in partnership with parents, and provide caring, safe and respectful learning environments. Catholic schools are affordable, and welcoming to all who value the explicit goals and educational quality that Catholic schools are known for. According to Executive Director of Cairns Catholic Education Services, Bill Dixon, “The new schools reflect our faith in the continuing strong growth of Cairns especially in the southern corridor and our belief in Weipa’s ongoing role as a strong mining and service centre on Cape York.” Cairns Catholic Education is an integral part of the life and fabric of the Far North Queensland region and proud to support its local Chamber of Commerce.

It is not necessary for students to be Catholic or come from Catholic families, however enrolments into Catholic schools comprise families that demonstrate their support for the values and ethos of Catholic education. Catholic schools take a holistic approach to delivering education and aim to provide an educational foundation for the full development of the person – intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically. Like all Australian schools, Catholic schools are accountable to the government for meeting the specific learning and teaching requirements

Today, Gary remains in charge as Director, with his son Brendan, now the Store Manager - the third generation Turner to take the helm. It is this close family connection and commitment to providing personalised service that has seen Turners remain competitive against major national chains.

“Our team prides itself in keeping up to date with the very latest developments in consumer electronics and appliances,” Brendan said.

Brendan says, “We’ve come a long way from 1936, but one thing has remained constant - an old fashioned dedication to service and courtesy and a store policy that every customer will be greeted personally.” “As part of Australia’s biggest independent buying group we have the buying power to source stock at prices that are more than competitive with the big national chains. On top of this, we can offer superior individual attention, personal service and flexibility when compared to a big brand store.” “With buying power second to none we regularly win government and commercial tenders with our competitive pricing.” The last eight decades have seen huge changes in both electronics technology and consumer retail and Turners has always been at the forefront of

FRANK LANZA MIGRATION SERVICES & LANZA LEGAL PTY LTD

The last 12 months saw the expansion of Frank Lanza Migration Services into the incorporated legal practice Lanza Legal. Frank Lanza Migration Services was launched in 1998. Since then, the team has grown to eight highly qualified staff, including three lawyers.

Lanza Legal assists clients needing help in family law, criminal law, contract law, commercial matters, mediation and arbitration of disputes and of course migration law.

To expand the range of services offered, the business became an incorporated law firm, and now operating as Lanza Legal can provide a full range of legal services. Frank is also a nationally accredited Mediator and Arbitrator.

Frank Lanza arrived in Australia in 1969 as a 23-year-old with nuclear engineering qualifications. He began working in mining exploration which took him across the globe for the next 17 years. As he neared his 40th birthday, he switched from engineering to law and graduated at 43.

Of course, Lanza Legal still provides the same specialist migration services they always have, from Frank Lanza and the same dedicated team of migration agents and lawyers.

Living and working in Cairns, Frank began practicing as a barrister before realising the potential for applying his legal knowledge in the field of migration. “I had been there myself, and I asked what I could do to help other people migrate,” Frank says.

The team is dedicated to helping visa applicants achieve their dreams, assisting with all kinds of visa applications including skilled migrants, students, partners, investors and retirees.

“I helped a few, a few became many, and many became a tidal wave.”

Frank remains the only Queensland Law Society nationally accredited

immigration law specialist in North Queensland – and one of only six in the state. Lanza Legal also assists local business interested in sourcing and sponsoring overseas workers. Tourism remains the biggest employer of overseas workers in Cairns, filling roles in restaurants, retail stores and tour and dive operators. Chinese speaking staff are the most highly sought after, followed by Japanese and Europeans. Frank says sourcing skilled migrants will become increasingly important to address the skills shortage left by Australia’s ageing population. “Australia will need to increase its migrant intake and skilled workers will comprise the lion’s share of that number.” For more information on Lanza Legal’s services - www.lanzalegal.com.au

LUCAS SEXTON

Property Shop Sales Executive, Lucas Sexton, is a fourth generation Cairns local who is proud to be local and proud to call Cairns home. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the local residential sales market and has been in real estate in Cairns since 2007. Born in Cairns and educated at Balaclava State School and Trinity Bay High School, Lucas is a 4th generation Cairns local and the great, great grandson of Charles Mckenzie the 3rd Mayor of Cairns in 1905. In recent years, Lucas has been involved with the Cairns Chamber of Commerce through the Leadership Programme and found the experience rewarding. “It was a fabulous opportunity to meet many of the people in our local business community and a very valuable learning experience.” Coming from a well-known family in Cairns who have had a very strong background in small to medium business, Lucas has many contacts in the Cairns Community and he is heavily involved in a number of Community organisations including Cairns Sunrise Rotary Club, Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ) and of course, the Cairns Chamber of Commerce. Lucas is excited about the future of

Contact details

Cairns and especially the Cairns’ property market and believes that if the Aspial Nova development goes ahead it will create the next “boom” so to speak for our community, and of course the Aquis development should it start. He is also a great believer in following and supporting the local tourism industry as “tourism drives everything in Cairns and you would have to be very naive to think that it doesn’t have an impact on the local business of all fields and the property market.” “Most areas of Cairns are definitely showing increases. Land sales have gone through the roof due to a lack of existing homes on the market and I am really looking forward to selling in a boom market.” Lucas sells property from Innisfail to the Tablelands and all over Cairns and believes the inner city suburbs are the areas to invest in because of their close proximity to the CBD, with short travel times for City workers.

When choosing an agent to market your property or to find your dream home, Lucas believes that you need to work with an agent you can trust, one who has a great local knowledge of the area you are looking in and one that is accessible. “Being able to provide home owners and investors, especially out-of-towners, with excellent local knowledge and experience of the Cairns property market is essential to meeting the needs of your clients.” If you are looking to sell or looking for your new home and you want to work with an agent that has a wealth of local knowledge and experience in the property market, then contact Lucas Sexton at Property Shop today.

RE/MAX CAIRNS

The Cairns real estate industry is entering exciting new territory, welcoming interest from international markets and opening new doors of opportunity for local people. Where 20 years ago agents looked only to their local market to sell property, RE/MAX Cairns now leads the way in promoting properties to overseas buyers. It has revolutionised the way Tony Williamson and his team do business and it is driving record results month on month. Tony says the Cairns real estate market now has the attention of the world. “There are many overseas markets – Japan, China, Philippines, India, South Africa, United Kingdom, for example,” he says. “Each foreign investor has differing reasons for investing but one thing they have in common is they see Cairns as somewhere they want to invest, because they see opportunity for yields and capital gains in a relatively solid economy, and a good lifestyle.” Tony has also identified new markets in emerging economies like China, Thailand and the Philippines. “The size of the middle class is booming and expanding at a dizzying rate. These are the investors who want to buy.” “They are the new ‘mum and dad’ investors, a group growing at a rate of knots, almost too fast to comprehend.” RE/MAX Cairns joins an international group of more than 6600 offices in 95 countries, providing even greater exposure for Tony’s team, and their property portfolio, on the world stage. In July 2015, Tony was a key player in the inaugural RE/ MAX Asia-Pacific network Conference and Property Fair in Singapore, forging valuable international agent-to-agent links. Australia and New Zealand will be among 13 regions involved including Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, Guam, Korea, China, Japan, India, Sri Lanka and Mongolia.

Contact details

“In March 2015, I was invited to speak to a similar world conference in Las Vegas, and I was a proud representative of Cairns, out in front of thousands of agents spreading the word that Cairns is the best place in the world.” It is the excitement of the chase that has sustained Tony’s interest in real estate since his start in the industry at 21. Born and raised in Cairns, he always had an interest in property and sales and jumped at the opportunity to combine them in a career. “Through momentum and hard work, we’ve built a beautiful business.” Tony likens real estate to sport, and says the job is performancebased and depends on individual performance in a team environment. As demand for property in Cairns continues to grow, so too does the team at RE/MAX Cairns. Tony employs a team of 26 people and is always on the lookout for enthusiastic new recruits. With the support of his team, Tony continues to pioneer the industry, tapping into previously unexplored buyer markets and employing innovative and effective marketing. “We are continually learning and adapting and researching what works, and adopting that into our work.”

TOTALLY WORKWEAR

This year Chris and June Kingsbury, owners of TWW Cairns, will be celebrating a milestone birthday as they celebrate the TWW business’ 20th year of trading in Cairns. Chris, June and their team of 20 full time and casual staff have already kick- started the celebrations with the very first TWW Corporate Fashion Runway event in May which was a fun and exciting evening held poolside on the rooftop at the Pullmans Reef Hotel Casino showcasing TWW’s range of corporate, business and industry wear in a runway fashion show. Chris and June were pleased with the success of the evening and are considering making this event part of the TWW Cairns annual calendar. Another opportunity to celebrate, will be later in the year at the TWW Annual Conference (10th12th September) which will, coincidentally, be held in Cairns for the first time. The conference will be an excellent opportunity for Chris and June to showcase our beautiful region and city of

Cairns to the Interstate TWW store owners from across Australia, and to celebrate 20 years at the helm of TWW Cairns. With the recent acquisition of the TWW brand by Wesfarmers [owners of Coles, Bunnings, Officeworks, Target, Kmart and other majors], exciting changes are on the horizon for the 63 TWW stores nationwide. Chris and June are looking forward to the challenges that the change will bring and believe it will be an exciting new era for the brand. In their 20 years of TWW business, possibly the greatest challenge Chris and June faced was embracing the need to expand as the business matured, from their original location to the current building just 400m further down the road at 98 Scott Street. “We began in a 100m2 postage stamp store further along on Scott Street and now we have grown 15-fold into the current facility”. TWW Cairns services clients from across the widest range of industries including Government corporate, medical, hospitality, construction and mining, and these provide a steady flow of business year long.

TOTALLY WORKWEAR “As we step into the next phase of our business, we will pull out all stops to become the corporate fashion leaders in Cairns, backed by the best brands.” However, FY16 brings with it the recognition that Cairns has grown up & come of age as an influential modern regional city, requiring a lifting of everyday business dress standards, to support our growing business confidence competing with business people from all walks of life. Chris and June will be targeting for steady growth from the Corporate sector, and this is supported by the recent introduction of pivotal brands including Van Huesen and Pierre Cardin, Gloweave Career, and Biz Corporates. “As we step into the next phase of our business, we will pull out all stops to become the corporate fashion leaders in Cairns, backed by the best brands.” Growth strategies include higher levels of representation, heightened willingness to participate in marketing across all media (including radio, TV and print) and working with the Cairns Chamber

of Commerce to establish good relationships and networking connections within the business community. In recent years TWW enjoyed working as a Platinum Sponsor within the Cairns Chamber of Commerce, and that choice firmly established the ‘Upstairs’ showroom at TWW as a premium provider of quality Business and Corporate wear across all genres of business. In the near future, as business confidence grows, Chris indicates they will look to “open another store or two’, possibly in both the Northern and Southern corridors of Cairns”. When asked what the formula is behind the success of TWW Cairns is, Chris says: “Managing your cash flow is key to survival. Beyond that, treasure your clients and treat your staff well.”
