“Go Local” to help fellow Queenslanders recover from Debbie

Another State Government advertising campaign swings into action today- this one aims to encourage us to help businesses and industries impacted by ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie by seeking goods and services from local traders and suppliers.

Website home page slidePremier Palaszczuk says she wants Queenslanders to join the “Go Local – keep Queensland going strong “initiative to help local farmers and businesses recover from the effects of Cyclone Debbie.

“Using a local business is a simple step we can all take to help our fellow Queenslanders get back on their feet.”

The Premier said progress is being made every day in helping communities recover and businesses have been reopening in affected areas.

The first phase of ‘Go Local’ is to raise awareness about the importance of supporting local businesses as part of the recovery from ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

In the second phase, businesses will have access to an online hub that will assist them in promoting their goods and services to Queenslanders.

The initiative is also being rolled out alongside Tourism and Events Queensland’s ‘This is Queensland’ marketing push, where travellers can share their favourite Queensland holiday photos on social media, encouraging travellers to consider a Queensland holiday.

Queenslanders can get involved by visiting the government’s Facebook page at facebook.com/queenslandgovernment or using the #GoLocal hashtag to share stories on what’s happening in their local area.
