Brisbane's Story

 

Brisbane is Australia’s new world city and has a thriving $146 billion economy, with that number projected to climb to $217 billion by 2031.

The closest major Australian capital city to Asia, Brisbane hosted the 2014 G20 Leaders Summit and is a thriving, progressive, multicultural city. It is a global hub in scientific innovation, mining and resources, technology, higher education, meetings and incentives and cultural attractions

The city’s more reliable physical infrastructure and enterprising intellectual capital mean investors can be more confident they will optimise their investment return. It provides superior port and airport facilities, world-class universities and research and Australia’s strongest and most sustained employment and graduate growth in professional services. 

Brisbane’s clearly articulated economic development plan was recognised with the Strategic Vision Award as part of fDi Magazine's Global Cities of the Future report, which also ranked the city 4th globally for its foreign direct investment strategy. This strong and rapidly growing industry support is based on a number of factors, the combination of which has created the ideal environment for investment, development and business confidence.
