The Sunshine Coast is building a new economy based on a clear 20-year economic plan, which presents investors with multiple opportunities and opens new avenues for business growth, development and expansion.
Sunshine Coast's competitive business environment, accessibility to markets, proposed new infrastructure, a highly-skilled workforce and idyllic lifestyle are the winning combination that is attracting national and international investment. Many outstanding businesses have already chosen to call the Sunshine Coast home, including Youi Insurance which is basing its global headquarters in the region.
The Regional Investment Prospectus showcases key infrastructure and industry investment opportunities in the region.
Significant capital investment is already underway. A new city centre - the only greenfield CBD in Australia at this time - will be established in Maroochydore and a new A$1.8 billion tertiary teaching hospital will open in 2017. The Sunshine Coast Airport is to be expanded to deliver Australia's next international airport and an A$81 million expansion of the University of the Sunshine Coast was completed in 2015. More than A$2.5 billion in direct investment has been committed across these four major projects, in addition to significant private investment fuelling growth in a number of high-value industries across the region.
This is an important time in the history of the Sunshine Coast as the region becomes a major Australian urban and economic centre.
