National award for Moreton region
MORETON Bay Region’s recently formed Regional Economic Development Strategy (REDS) took out the national award for Strategic Thinking at the recent Economic Development Australia Awards.
Mayor Peter Flannery said it was an incredible endorsement of the REDS, which was launched in February this year.
“There are no words to describe my excitement, I can hardly think of higher recognition for our plan to transform Moreton Bay Region than this incredible industry award,” he said.
“Investors seeking to grow their business have an unrivalled opportunity to take advantage of one of the fastest growing business ecosystems in Australia, and a Council dedicated to supporting business and industry flourish.”
Cr Flannery said that included the likes of The Mill at Moreton Bay, the Caboolture West development, and the Scarborough Harbour Masterplan.
Moreton Bay Region’s REDS document outlines an ambitious agenda to transform Moreton Bay Region over the next two decades into a $40 billion economy, with an additional 240,000 people and creating 100,000 more local jobs.
