Mayor’s mis­sion over­seas

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

SUN­SHINE Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson will show­case some of the re­gion’s ma­jor in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and pur­sue new op­por­tu­ni­ties to at­tract smart busi­nesses to the re­gion as part of an up­com­ing in­ter­na­tional in­vest­ment mis­sion.

The three-week in­vest­ment mis­sion sup­ports com­mit­ments in the Re­gional Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Strat­egy and is part of coun­cil’s plan to en­cour­age job cre­at­ing in­vest­ment in the Coast’s seven high-value in­dus­tries.

Cr Jamieson will visit the United King­dom, The Nether­lands and Is­rael.

He will then join the Coun­cil of May­ors South East Queens­land del­e­ga­tion at the Asia Pa­cific Cities Sum­mit in Dae­jeon in South Korea to pro­mote the Sun­shine Coast in this key mar­ket.

Cr Jamieson will also hold talks with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Cam­bridge Univer­sity in re­la­tion to ar­eas for po­ten­tial col­lab­o­ra­tion, as well as brief­ing lead­ing fund man­agers and com­mer­cial property in­vestors in Lon­don in re­la­tion to the in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in the Ma­roochy­dore City Cen­tre.

“We need to re­mem­ber that Lon­don re­mains one of the top three global fi­nan­cial mar­kets and with the Brexit process now un­der way, the op­por­tu­ni­ties that could emerge for United King­dom in­vestors and busi­nesses to look se­ri­ously at Aus­tralian lo­ca­tions like the Sun­shine Coast need to be pre­sented to them.”
