Wide Bay Regional Economic Recovery Plan

Wide Bay region

Our vision for Queensland’s recovery from this pandemic is threefold—we are working to protect the health of every Queenslander, we are creating jobs, and we are working together to create the conditions for future success.

Our regions are the key to building Queensland’s economic recovery. It has taken a collaborative effort from every region to shape our plan for the future. We will continue to partner—with governments, industries, businesses and communities—to navigate this new world for future growth.

The Wide Bay region has abundant fertile agricultural land and a significant forestry and tourism industry. Two university campuses and a port support the diverse industries of the region.

Our investment will draw new industries such as renewable energy to the region and build traditional industries such as manufacturing, supporting innovation and setting up a long and prosperous recovery.
