If you’ve been keeping up with our weekly blogs, you may remember an update from early-December last year on Geelong expanding into a ‘new economy’. (Check it out HERE). The blog discussed the city’s transition from a factory town with a strong manufacturing base, into a ‘new economy’ city with a broad range of industries and a growing population. Well, in recent news, PM Malcolm Turnbull has revealed that Geelong will be first in line to benefit from a $220 million Regional Jobs and Investment Packages project. Our earlier blog had shared a prediction that the city’s surge in capital growth could only just be the beginning, and with this just in, it looks like Geelong is on its way to becoming an advanced city and manufacturing powerhouse.
