The Invest Capricorn Coast Region Business and Industry Mapping project builds on the Invest Capricorn Coast Region Economic Development Plan (EDP), which was adopted by the Livingstone Shire Council in April 2018. This project provides further detailed economic and industry data and identifies specific clusters and industry opportunities to target for investment attraction and business development.
Currently, there are $3.6 billion of major projects identified for the future, changing national and global dynamics regarding agriculture and food production, shifting demographics and emerging strength in the mining and defence sectors, all of which will drive the opportunity for future economic growth, investment and jobs in the Capricorn Coast region.
This plan is about how the Livingstone Shire Council can strategically target economic development efforts in specific areas to maximise the future potential economic outcomes for the region.
