Mayor Jamieson - Business feeling confident on the Sunshine Coast
  • Friday 28 December 2018

The recently released results from the 2018 Sunshine Coast Business Confidence survey have added to the optimism in our region as we head into a new year.

A key finding is that 83% of respondents said they expected their business to perform the same or much stronger over the next six months.

Our Sunshine Coast continues to prosper, with more than $12.5 billion in public and private projects planned or underway across our healthy, smart, creative region.

This year alone we have witnessed milestones such as the opening of Youi’s $73 million global HQ and a commitment to establish an international broadband submarine cable that will provide Australia’s fastest data and telecommunications connection to Asia.

We’ve seen the start of construction of the new international runway at the Sunshine Coast Airport and further progress on the Maroochydore City Centre.

Each of these commitments generate confidence in our region – confidence that encourages new investment, grows consumption, generates jobs and instils a sense of optimism about our future.

Here's to a prosperous 2019.
