We have led the development of the North West Queensland Economic Diversification Strategy( 3.7 MB) - a key action of the Strategic Blueprint for Queensland’s North West Minerals Province.
Following an extensive consultation process throughout June and July 2019 the strategy was released on 26 August 2019.
The strategy identifies a range of opportunities across the resources, agriculture, tourism, business and industry sectors that have the potential to support long-term sustainable growth in North West Queensland.
Also within the strategy is a suite of initiatives and actions that will be implemented over the next two years to mid-2021. These are structured around three key themes:
- enhanced investment environment;
- strong supply chains; and
- sustainable communities.
To support the strategy’s ongoing delivery, we are developing a separate, detailed implementation plan that will be released later this year. This plan will outline how initiatives and actions will be rolled out, including timing, funding support and success measures.
We will release further information as implementation details are finalised.
