Mayor Antonio confident broad economic base will drive future growth

The Toowoomba Region is well positioned to capitalise on a decade-long run of enviable growth thanks to a robust and broad economic base, Mayor Paul Antonio said at last night’s (March 11) Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) function at the Oaks Hotel.

Trade and Investment Queensland Chief Executive Officer Paul Martyn was the other guest speaker.

Mayor Antonio’s 2021 State of the Region address highlighted priority projects which Council, business and industry groups and the private sector are advancing.

“I’m extremely confident that our Region has the resolve and the broad economic base which will drive our future growth,” Mayor Antonio said.

“The Toowoomba Region is fortunate to have proactive private investors who are underpinning the Region’s growth by delivering major projects that diversify our economy and offer job opportunities.

“Council is planning for the future, especially around the provision of a secure water supply that will be essential to service not only an estimated 55, 000 new residents over the next 30 years, but for our expanding industrial and commercial sectors, especially new ventures at the Toowoomba Trade Gateway.”
