Economic Development

The economic heart of CQ

Rockhampton is recognised globally as the economic heart of Central Queensland. It is home to a critical mass of residents, high quality services and facilities and a dynamic and prosperous economy driven by entrepreneurial and innovative businesses, strategic investment and international exports.

As Council’s Economic Development Unit, Advance Rockhampton works closely with the local business community and Government to drive economic activity within the region. The Advance Rockhampton Economic Action Plan 2016-2020  outlines how this will be achieve.
