Employment growth seen across Queensland

One major drawcard for people looking for properties to purchase or rent is the consistent growth of the local economy. As an investor, it's important to take notice of these trends and make conscious decisions about whether or not buying in one area or another is the strongest choice for your portfolio development in the long term. 

Now could be a great time to get in touch with a real estate agent in Burpengary to discuss the property options in the region, with new Australian Bureau of Statistics figures highlighting an overarching increase in full​-time employment opportunities across Queensland. 

Treasurer Curtis Pitt said the new data found 4,800 new job opportunities were created across the state in March, making it the fifth month for consecutive growth Queensland has experienced. 

"We're working with business and industry to create more jobs, grow the economy and provide more employment opportunities for Queenslanders," said Mr Pitt in a 16 April statement. 

He went on to say that the new Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative aimed to support 32,000 people looking for work over the next four years, helping individuals across the state reach their full potential and find satisfying, secure employment.
