Investment push to grow border economy
Growth in the Albury Wodonga economy and support for existing businesses will be just two of the benefits expected from the newly-launched Invest Albury Wodonga campaign.
A joint focus of AlburyCity and Wodonga Councils, Invest Albury Wodonga will highlight the maturity and strength of the region to attract investment.
In addition to the ongoing support for our local businesses, AlburyCity and Wodonga Council will continue to encourage interstate and international operations to relocate to, or invest in the region.
“Albury Wodonga has a great deal to offer businesses and investors,” said Wodonga Councillor John Watson.
“This campaign provides us the opportunity to showcase our region as an ideal location to invest.”
As part of the Two Cities One Community initiative, the campaign will be supported by a marketing plan across digital and traditional media. The campaign will present four key reasons to invest: strategic location, competitive land prices, a skilled and stable workforce and red carpet, not red tape.
Diversity of the economy is also a key drawcard for those looking to establish in the region. With more than 4,000 businesses operating locally and Gross Regional Product valued at $6.8 billion annually, the foundations have already been laid for accelerated economic growth.
“We know we operate as one economy and we want to capitalise on the benefits presented by working together,” said Albury Mayor, Cr Kevin Mack.
“Each city has its own specialisations and advantages that will appeal to different investors.”
AlburyCity and Wodonga Council look forward to consulting with businesses over the coming months to determine how Invest Albury Wodonga can support local development and drive growth across the border.
