"Tim is a highly talented and experienced politician who has always worked very closely and productively with the Queensland business community.
"It's very clear from Ai Group's work with him during his term as Queensland Treasurer that he has a strong understanding of the levers required to drive growth, competitiveness and increased productivity in the State. In particular Tim's deep knowledge and experience of issues impacting business will be vitally important at this time of significant economic change in the State and more broadly across the Australian economy.
"Congratulations also to the very talented Deb Frecklington on her appointment as Deputy Opposition Leader. We worked closely with Deb during her term in government and look forward to continuing to work closely with both Deb and Tim in their new roles.
"Ai Group and its members also recognise the hard work of Lawrence Springborg during his term as Opposition Leader and congratulate him on his many achievements over the period.
"A robust Opposition is key if good policy outcomes are to be achieved. Today's changes mark the end of a long period of uncertainty in the LNP camp and business welcomes the certainty and stability that we hope will follow from today's developments," Ms Dunn said.
