"I have been pushing hard for more defence related spending in Capricornia and this announcement is the fruition of long negotiations with Singapore. This is truly one of the most extraordinary deals to directly benefit our local economy that we will see. It a once in a lifetime boost to Rockhampton, Yeppoon and the Capricorn coast by a foreign country."
