Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) have held their first Enterprise Evening event of 2015. More than 310 guests attended the event last Thursday at USQ’s Clive Berghofer Recreation Centre in Toowoomba, where TSBE chief executive officer Shane Charles gave insights into where economic development will take the region in 2015. With the announcement of the Regional Australia Institute’s predication of a $10 billion boom in GRP for the Toowoomba and Surat Basin region over the next 15 years, Mr Charles told guests there is plenty to be excited about. This month’s Enterprise Evening was sponsored by BUSSQ, with guests also hearing from Denis Wagner as a representative of RangeLink, one of the short-listed consortiums for the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing.
