Deadly Business 2032

    Launched in Cairns on October 19 by Di Farmer MP, Queensland Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development, Deadly Business 2032 is a key action recently released under the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) First Nations Training Strategy known as Paving the Way. Jen McHugh attended the launch at Umi Arts in Cairns representing the TNQ Drought Hub, Sustainable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Enterprise Program.

    Deadly Business 2032 will comprehensively map Indigenous small business support services available in FNQ. It aims to provide better support to achieve long-term sustainability, employ people and participate in supply chains leading up to and beyond the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic games. It will facilitate a better understanding of Indigenous small business strengths, capacity, opportunity and aspiration in Far North Queensland (FNQ). “We want First Nations business owners to grow in capability and capacity, and events and projects statewide including Deadly Business 2032 are helping businesses do just that,’’ Minister Farmer said.

    “Deadly Business 2032 is a key project for the Far North region that will facilitate new partnerships, prepare businesses and generate business growth in the lead up to the Games.”

    According to the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games Value Proposition Assessment the tourism and trade opportunities the Games could deliver are significant. This includes an estimated uplift of around $20.2 billion in international visitor expenditure between 2020 and 2036 and increased export opportunities of up to $8.6 billion.

    The proposition also stated that the 2018 Commonwealth Games held on the Gold Coast, made a positive contribution to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with contracts worth more than $14 million awarded to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses. It is expected that potential financial flows for the 2032 Olympics will exceed those experienced from the Commonwealth games.
