Brisbane secures 4th place in the world for foreign investment strategy

Brisbane has rated highly in the prestigious ‘Global Cities of the Future’ accolades, reports


The report is released every two years by London-based fDi Intelligence.


In an excellent result, Brisbane ranked fourth out of 53 entries in the Foreign Direct Investment category, and tenth out of 131 entries in the Human Capital and Lifestyle category.


Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said “Placing fourth for foreign direct investment strategy demonstrates that Brisbane is successfully showing the world that our city is economically resilient, supports foreign investors across a range of industry sectors, and is backed by a robust and connected business and government environment.”


“To be ranked within the top 10 globally for human capital and lifestyle is testament to the outstanding education, research, business, employment and lifestyle opportunities that continue to attract and retain talented and skilled people in our great city.”


Brisbane Marketing, which is the city’s economic development board played a role in receiving two inaugural awards for strategy.


The Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan was awarded with the Strategic Vision Award, and the Tourism Development Award was won by the city’s hotel investment strategy and tourism infrastructure.


Mr Quirk said “More than $10 billion worth of major project and infrastructure work in the pipeline will support greater numbers of tourists who are choosing our progressive and multicultural city for the wealth of unique experiences on offer.”


“The latest fDi Intelligence rankings are another indicator that Brisbane is becoming a more globally competitive city which will continue to attract and benefit from foreign direct investment.”
