Mayor’s mission overseas
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.”
