Queensland has a $300+ billion economy that is diverse, resilient and heading in the right direction.

Economic growth is forecast to strengthen in coming years, supported by Queensland businesses setting export records and an upturned domestic economy.

Queensland’s economy is diverse and the Queensland Government’s economic plan is focused on innovation, investment and building infrastructure for the state’s future.

The Government’s $650 million Advance Queensland initiative supports programs that drive innovation, build on the state’s natural advantages, and help raise Queensland’s profile as an attractive investment destination.

As part of Advance Queensland, several priority industries are being supported by the Queensland Government to build their competitive strengths and create the knowledge-based jobs of the future. The priority industries are:

  • Advanced manufacturing
  • Aerospace
  • Biofutures
  • Biomedical
  • Defence
  • Mining equipment, technology and services (METS)
