Premier of Victoria Message 2010-11 Annual::

It’s a busy and successful time for investment in the State of Victoria.  As a sophisticated and modern economy, Victoria offers overseas investors diverse business opportunities across a range of sectors from cutting-edge biotechnology to advanced manufacturing and the plethora of opportunities in the burgeoning cleantech field, including carbon market services.

Victoria’s reputation as a highly competitive economy and an attractive foreign investment destination continues to grow; particularly following our economy’s comparative strength among advanced economies during the global financial crisis.  Victoria continues to attract a number of large investments and projects.

As the technology capital of Australia, Melbourne has been chosen as the centre for the development of the Commonwealth’s proposed new National Broadband Network, and IBM is establishing its first global research and development laboratory here, creating 150 highly-skilled positions.

Opportunities abound in Victoria, and with our capital city Melbourne continually ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world, it’s an investment proposition hard to pass up.

I look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne, Victoria in 2011.


Premier of Victoria
