The Gold Coast is open for business. We're committed to delivering a business environment to create long term prosperity. We do this through creating conditions favourable to investment attraction, business growth - including the Digital Enterprise Program and business relocation. The City of Gold Coast's (City) Economic Development Branch facilitates growth and investment through our Economic Development Strategy.
We are also working to align city marketing and promotions with those plans, strategies and actions of the City and its partners that will transform the Gold Coast and our city reputation over the next ten years.
