With a focus on support for small business and nurturing innovation to create economic growth with more jobs across Brisbane, Council has increased its investment in economic development to $441.4 million in 2017-18.
For small business, Council's $1 million investment over four years to extend Council's current free Wi-Fi offering into eight suburban centres will continue this financial year, and include Wynnum CBD and Sandgate Town Centre.
Small business will also benefit from ongoing investment of $1.5 million in Council's Business Hotline 133 BNE, a 24/7 resource through which businesses can access information on a range of Council topics including licencing, development applications, business opportunities and procurement.
In generating economic opportunities for the city, Council has allocated $6.3 million for leisure tourism, conventions and major events, with an aim to attract significant events to Brisbane.
As an event city, Council will partner with the State Government for the Commonwealth Games to help showcase Brisbane to the world, while also rolling out initiatives to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Expo 88 and facilitating the Wynnum Beach volleyball activation.
