Report: Queensland biofutures 10-year roadmap and action plan

Queensland biofutures 10-year roadmap and action plan 
Department of State Development, June 2016

The world is changing rapidly and the traditional industries that have supported us and been the backbone of our state are strong but our economy is transitioning. Queensland is in the fortunate position to  have a broad range of internationally competitive industries that contribute to our diversified economy.  The Queensland Government is committed to meeting the challenges of the future head-on and is driving innovation to secure Queensland’s future.

Our Advance Queensland program is providing the support to further diversify the economy by developing new industries that have global growth potential, and in turn create the knowledge-based jobs of the
future. Advance Queensland will foster new industry and research collaborations that will tackle the big innovation challenges.

Biofutures is one of the opportunities that will support future economic development, open the door to new investment and grow employment in regional Queensland. Opening our eyes to new possibilities ultimately means jobs and a more secure future for Queensland.

The biofutures industry could have a transformative effect on Queensland’s economy, but it won’t happen without government commitment. We are determined to see a strong and sustainable industrial biotechnology and bioproducts sector become a reality.
