The City of Victoria is seeking public feedback to help shape its draft economic action plan, Victoria 3.0 – Pivoting to a Higher-Value Economy – 2020-2041.

  • Stimulate and support innovation
  • Build on the economic stability offered by our large public sector employment base
  • Diversify our economy
  • Respond to the big changes that will have an impact on sustainable economic growth, including automation and climate change
  • Tell Us What You Think
