The $2.24 million CRCNA research collaboration is between Australias leading Calypso mango exporter Perfection Fresh (Perfection), the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and the University of Queensland. It will use the latest in supply chain management, quality assessment tools and information technology platforms to identify to resolve issues impeding the export of mangoes into China. The CRCNA has committed $952,471 towards the project. Its expected to be completed by mid-2021. CRCNA chief executive Jed Matz said improvements in the domestic supply chain management will be shared with the broader industry. The impact of this project will be across the northern Australian mango industry as opportunities to increase the volume of mango exports into China means less pressure on local prices in the longer term, he said.

Labor will invest: $100 million to upgrade four key access roads in the Kakadu National Park, to allow for year-round access to key sites in Kakadu; $44 million for environmental and national park infrastructure upgrades, including work to tackle invasive species, better fire management, and improved camping facilities and car parking; $25 million for a new Kakadu visitor and world heritage interpretive centre in Jabiru; $2.5 million to improve mobile connectivity in the Park, for increased visitor safety and better reception for locals; $2.5 million for a new Tourism Masterplan to help ensure Kakadu remains a world tourism leader and continues to grow visitor numbers; $45 million to undertake urgent asbestos remediation work in Jabiru; and $1 million for a new roads strategy to be developed to improve safety on Kakadus remote roads. There has been a great deal of work done by the Northern Territory government and stakeholders on improving tourism in Kakadu and helping Jabiru transition from mining to tourism. I applaud the Chief Minister Michael Gunner and his government for undertaking this important work. Kakadu is one of Australias most recognisable tourist destinations and a World Heritage listed environmental and cultural site. Cared for by its Aboriginal custodians for 65,000 years, Kakadu is home to spectacular scenery, pristine environment, and immense cultural value. It is a natural wonder that should be celebrated and shared with the world. With the Ranger mine coming to an end in the next few years, Jabirus businesses and residents face an uncertain future. They need economic activity and jobs for their region and that means more tourism. Because the upgrades that the national park desperately needs have been ignored for too long, fewer tourists are visiting and Kakadu has gone backwards. We want Kakadu to be at the top of the list for Australian and international visitors and Labor will help make that happen.
