"How will Brisbane continue to be Australia's New World City?"

"As Australia’s New World City, Brisbane has rapidly emerged as an influential leader in the Asia Pacific and a highly desirable place to do business. The city’s growing global recognition was accelerated by its highly successful staging of the 2014 G20 World Leaders Summit. Capitalising on its enhanced international reputation, Brisbane is shaping itself as a vibrant hub and world leader attracting industry sectors that are globally scalable in the new world economy."

Meet the Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk

Graham has a long record of service to Brisbane, celebrating 30 years with Council in 2015.

These include major infrastructure projects such as the TransApex network of cross city tunnels and bridges, the Road Action Program, improving public transport with Council’s entire bus fleet now fully wheelchair accessible and enhancing Brisbane’s capacity for long-term economic growth. He continues to support measures to attract more events, visitors and investment to the city. This is evidenced by the multitude of world class events staged in Brisbane, such as the G20 Leaders’ Summit in 2014.
