Trucking Australia 23 is shaping as a key industry event for the diary in the first half of the year with federal Transport Minister Catherine King confirmed as a keynote speaker.
Shadow Transport Minister, Senator Bridget McKenzie, will also give an address at the Australian Trucking Association’s annual conference on the Sunshine Coast from March 29-31.
ATA chair David Smith said it’s exciting news to have King and McKenzie on the speaker roster.
“Catherine King and Bridget McKenzie are some of the key decision makers for our industry in parliament, so we’re delighted that both have agreed to speak at TA23,” said Smith.
“This is a pivotal moment for trucking. We’ve had just about every challenge imaginable thrown at us in the last few years and there are big changes coming down the road. Now is the time when decisions must be made to ensure a safe, productive and sustainable future for the trucking industry.
“There’s a real sense of momentum building about this conference. We will have industry and political heavy hitters in the same room, at this key moment when the decisions are being made which will shape our future.”
