Moreton Bay is a rapidly growing region of South East Queensland (SEQ), expecting to reach a population of
656,000 by 2041. This growth will generate the need for considerable employment opportunities in the region
to maintain and enhance the prosperity and quality of life of new households.
RPS was engaged by RDA Moreton Bay Inc to develop a suite of recommendations for implementation that
will transform Moreton Bay businesses into a collaborative “Asia Ready” network of exporters to help meet
and exceed the future economic potential of the region.
Businesses that export generally have a higher probability of surviving in the face of economic headwinds
than non-exporting businesses. This reflects higher business performance in terms of sales, growth rates
(particularly early on), capital investment and labour productivity.
