With the Commonwealth committing $8.4billion towards the Inland rail project and $472 million as a Regional Growth Fund, there is a strong push for Queensland to diversify and broaden industries in order to boost the state’s economic prospects.

Against a backdrop of several major developments in infrastructure, tourism, innovation, education and urban development, the transition from resource-driven growth to broader, diversified economic activity brings about a myriad of opportunities to unlock the prosperity of Queensland.

The latest addition to Aventedge’s INFRACON series, Developing Queensland is a premier two-day conference bringing together government and private sector to explore strategies to attract investments in the region. The event will showcase current and future development priorities driving growth and shed light on how government and businesses can enhance collaboration and leverage innovation to achieve sustainable economic development.
