Engine Industries driving our region
In response to regional economies narrowing and deepening across the globe, the NSW Government has identified 'engine industries' which employ a higher proportion of people compared to other regions. These engine industries reflect an area’s competitive advantages and endowments.
Queanbeyan-Palerang shows strength across all of the Regional NSW engine industries, providing us with the means to become national and regional leaders in areas including defence, advanced manufacturing, renewable energy, health and recreational care, freight and logistics and agribusiness and forestry. The area brings a range of highly-specialised industries to NSW’s regional portfolio, and our business environment provides the foundation for the success of new businesses in these areas.
