A Strategic Business Location
Geographically, the city is ideally placed to attract global business. Situated on the edge of the Asia Pacific Rim, Gold Coast City has a similar time zone to that of the major trading nations in Southeast Asia.
Major road and rail transport initiatives including the under construction $A1.7billion Rapid Transit System provide the city with excellent access to major air and sea ports.
Accessible from both the Brisbane and Gold Coast airports, its location puts some 3 billion people from the Asia Pacific region within a direct flight radius.
There are also a number of key commercial and industrial areas across the city, with the largest being the Yatala Enterprise Area (YEA).
Committed to diversifying the city’s economy, facilitating industry growth and supporting business expansion and relocation, Business Gold Coast has an Investment Attraction Program that assists in bringing business investment to the city.
The Program incorporates a suite of services, including a financial assistance package, introductions to local industry networks, location selection assistance and much more.
