Joondalup promoted as the place to do business

April 21, 2015 by  

A new document highlighting Joondalup’s research and investment opportunities has been launched at the city’s opening business forum in 2015.

Printing services have been used to create the Joondalup Has The Edge Investment Attraction Prospectus, which aims to draw new commercial ventures to the area and encourage existing firms to expand or invest.

Joondalup is seen as a booming area in Western Australia and in the past 10 years, its economy grew by nearly 50 percent, with more than 10,000 jobs being created. Around 40 percent of Perth’s metropolitan population lives close to Joondalup.

Mayor Troy Pickard said the area was increasingly a base for global businesses, and that it is attractive for investment due to lower building occupancy costs and employment costs, as well as good transport links. He commented:

“The opportunities in Joondalup are endless and with an exciting future ahead the City is not only an attractive destination for potential investors but it’s also a great place to live, learn, work and visit.”

At the prospectus launch Edith Cowan University Chancellor the Honourable Dr Hendy Cowan also highlighted the research work done by the institution and its potential to link with businesses, one of the things the new document aims to showcase.
