Regional Economic Development Strategy 2020-2041

Regional Economic Development Strategy

The Regional Economic Development Strategy 2020-2041 (REDS) provides the blueprint for Council, industry and the business community to collaboratively build a $40 billion economy by attracting and generating 100,000 new jobs for our region by 2041.

The REDS provides long-term economic direction for the region and drives innovation and entrepreneurship to position the Moreton Bay region as one of Australia’s top 10 regional innovation hubs by 2041.

The success of the REDS depends on collaboration and support from all stakeholders and the MBRC Economic Development team serves as the catalyst in maintaining this engagement.

Our local profile

Get to know our region better by using the demographic data and statistics provided by and made available by Moreton Bay Regional Council.

The available data is structured around economic indicators, size, industry comparisons, spatial economy, journey to work, self-containment, workforce profile, local labour force and local market data to paint a picture of how our region works.

Using the Community Profile, as well as the Social Atlas and Economic Profile, you can:

  • understand the size of our local economy, our growth story and how we compare across regions
  • dig deeper into our local business and employment centres
  • view our local labour pool and the commuters in our workforce
  • understand the available infrastructure and strategic opportunities for new businesses.

Together, these tools form an incredibly powerful suite to help you understand our local government area and make the best business decisions with the latest data and modelling.
