LATEST NEWS FOR THE REGION
PROJECT STATUS REPORT
The Regional Development Australia Ipswich & West Moreton (RDAIWM) Committee is proud to release their inaugural 2017 Project Status Report. This report contains the latest information available including highly anticipated statistics from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) 2016 Census.
The RDAIWM Committee and staff hope that this report will be used to assist decision makers in regards to infrastructure needs, investment, development and future planning for our region.
Our region now annually produces close to $13bn Gross Regional Product to the National and State economy, which is an increase of $1.36bn (11.7%) on June 2015 financial year figures. We also have one of the fastest growing regions in Queensland, so we need infrastructure to keep up with demand.
