Prospectus sells Downs
INVESTMENT opportunities across the Southern Downs region have been highlighted in a newly-released Southern Downs Investment Prospectus.
Southern Downs Mayor Ron Bellingham said the prospectus was designed to focus investment attention on large-scale infrastructure projects, together with private sector opportunities within the agribusiness, aviation, property and tourism sectors.
“Frankly, I am excited the Southern Downs now has a concise selling tool for our region,” Cr Bellingham said.
“When I am travelling outside the region, I am often asked by potential investors for facts and figures about the Southern Downs.
“I am pleased I can now hand them the prospectus, which has all the relevant up-to-date data.”
The document also provides an overview of the economic capabilities of the region, including workforce details, existing infrastructure and the wide range of support services that the region can bring to new projects.
Economic development officer John Randall said the Investment Prospectus would be regularly updated and accessible from council’s website.
“In this electronic age, investors these days are demanding the most current information when assessing potential projects, so we can refresh the information and data as required,” Mr Randall said.
The Investment Prospectus will also be distributed to key financial and property investors in Brisbane and other target areas over the coming month.
“It’s a very competitive market at present for those seeking investment dollars, so council is keen to assist where it can to bring new dollars into the region to create and sustain local jobs,” Mr Randall said.
