The Prime Minister has told LNP Senator Susan McDonald he was focused on Queensland.
In a recent video message recorded with the Townsville-based Senator the PM said that for Queensland it was about investing in the infrastructure that Queenslanders needed across the state.
"It has been a strong week for standing up for rural and regional communities whether it's providing support for the drought, getting back on our feet responding to many other natural disasters," Mr Morrison said.
"We are also focused as we begin negotiations with the UK for a free trade agreement and that's going to be very important for people in Queensland just like all the other FTAs to date."
Mr Morrison also spoke about the resources sector which he said was the strength of our nation.
"It's more important that ever as we focus on coming out of the COVID crisis," he said.
"Our mining sector has stayed open and that has been so critical to communities - one of my favourites up there in Cloncurry, I know how important mining is up there."
Senator McDonald said it was terrific to hear the Prime Minister express his genuine desire for the regions to prosper.
"He and the Coalition know that our regions fuel Australia's economy," she said.
"And great to hear a special shoutout to Cloncurry."
It was one of two recent shoutouts to the Curry from the PM lately following his call for Guy Sebastian to play a gig there.
