Gail Sellers: Turnbull's economic growth focus is welcome

GAIL Sellers has had her say on the Liberal leadership spill:

"MALCOLM Turnbull's focus on addressing economic growth is welcome.

We always knew that the boost to our local economy provided by the LNG projects would finish.

I believe the region's economy is now in a settling phase, with businesses looking to reinvent themselves.

Some are expanding into new areas, others are renovating and looking at new ways to do business. After four hectic years we are entering a period of consolidation.

But Gladstone is always looking to the next opportunity and with our skilled workforce and willingness to adopt new enterprises, we are well positioned to benefit from Mr Turnbull's emphasis on trade, innovative industries and opportunities to be found in emerging markets."
