"The world’s eyes will be on Queensland in 2014"
A STATE treasurer, mayors and the heads of Queensland's peak farming and tourism industry groups have been appointed to make sure the Sunshine State gets the best out of next year's G20 event.
Also on the Queensland 20 group is the University of Queensland and Griffith University vice-chancellors, Brisbane Airport chief executive and News Limited's Queensland editorial director.
Treasurer Wayne Swan said the Q20 would mix a broad range of skills, interests and expertise to ensure Queensland would be able to make the most of the historic opportunity.
"The world's eyes will be on Queensland in 2014 and each member of the Q20 brings a strong desire to build on G20 meetings and create opportunities to promote all that Queensland has to offer - from mining, tourism, agriculture, education, through to business and investment opportunities," he said.
The G20 will attract world leaders, media and Central Bank Governors from the world's 20 top economies.
