Invested in Queensland program
The $520 million Invested in Queensland program unlocks new investment through partnerships with the private sector. The program is available to medium and large organisations with high value, investment-ready projects that offer strategic, long-term economic benefit to both the organisation and to Queensland.
There are two investment schemes under the program:
Strategic Investment Scheme
The Strategic Investment Scheme is designed to provide tailored assistance packages to Queensland based, interstate and internationally based business to support large-scale projects that result in significant economic benefits in terms of new jobs and wider supply chain and industry benefits. Projects may include new investment, significant expansions and supply chain capability enhancements.
Investment Support Scheme
The Investment Support Scheme is a rebate program for payroll tax and other state-managed taxes, designed to incentivise international and interstate businesses, with proven capability, to invest in Queensland through a transfer or expansion of operations. It is also open to Queensland-based companies considering reinvestment with a contestable investment decision.

Significant investment facilitation framework
The Queensland Government has an appetite for high impact investment projects with large capital expenditure, that create significant jobs for Queenslanders, and are likely to reach final investment decisions within the next year. We understand that such projects can be extraordinarily complex and benefit from elevated government coordination.
Once a project is selected by government to be managed though the significant investment facilitation framework elevated multi-agency and cross-government collaboration and coordination commences.
The $2.1 billion Townsville Energy Chemicals Hub project being developed by Queensland Pacific Metals is an example of the Significant Investment Facilitation Framework in action. Read more about this project.
