MITEZ Is another useful resource if you are looking to make B2B connections in the North West Minerals Province.
The Mount Isa to Townsville Economic Development Zone (MITEZ) is the peak regional development organisation for an area encompassing seven local government associations – Mount Isa, Cloncurry, McKinlay, Richmond, Flinders, Charters Towers and Townsville.
The MITEZ region extends 920 kilometres inland from its most eastern point on the Great Barrier Reef, across North Queensland over the Great Dividing Range and across the outback of North West Queensland to the Northern Territory border. In total, the region covers approximately 16% of Queensland’s land area.
The MITEZ region is home to approximately 230,000 local residents. Strategically located, the region acts as a vital integrated transport corridor; connecting the region and its extensive mineral and agricultural production to the rest of Queensland, Australia and internationally via road, rail, air and sea links.
Over the past 10 years, the region’s resource-rich economy has diversified into new sectors while maintaining its established industry strengths. The region accounted for around 5% of Queensland’s economic output over 2015-16.
MITEZ is committed to continuing the diversification of new industries, alongside the expansion of new markets and the promotion of existing investment opportunities.
This commitment will help to accelerate the growth of the region and ensure its continued prosperity well into the future.
With thanks to MITEZ for use of their resources.
