According to TheMorningBulletin.com.au, ADANI Australia chief executive Jeyakumar Janakaraj has urged Central Queensland suppliers to begin upskilling as a decision on contracts is imminent.
Last week, Mr Janakaraj revealed that soon a "supplier and jobs portal" will be launched, intended to alert Central Queenslanders to opportunities on the project. Linking suppliers, job seekers, and procurement teams on the rail, port and mines projects.

News of the jobs portal comes just days after Adani was criticised over claims it sidestepped digital rail network 4Tel, which is run by a Yeppoon man, opting for an overseas firm.
Capricorn Enterprises chief executive officer Mary Carroll said 4Tel was shortlisted for the contract but was later ruled out.
But Adani on Friday said the claims were not true as the contract for the package had not yet been decided.
