JFTAG views this development as extremely pivotal, as support and input from local government, has always been considered to be vital to ultimate success. The importance of presenting a strong, united, and cohesive strategic plan to current owners Forestry Plantations Queensland (FPQ), who have already indicated their willingness to repair and transfer ownership, also cannot be underestimated.
