Good morning, everybody. Welcome to Queensland and welcome to Brisbane. My name is Richard Eden. I’m the State Director General for the Department of Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games. Joining me today is the Minister for Tourism, Major Events, Small Business, and the Commonwealth Games, the Honourable Jann Stuckey, MP, and the Chairman of the 2018 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, Mr Nigel Chamier, OAM.
We are here to talk you about Queensland and what it has to offer in the world of world-class events and our wonderful climate and facilities and beautiful natural environment. It makes it a great destination.
