The North West Queensland Strategic Development Study initiated by MITEZ aims to outline development opportunities and priorities in the North West and Gulf region for next 30 years. It is anticipated that the outcomes of the study will assist governments and major investors to develop their future interests in the region in the best interest of the North West community.

The study was initiated by MITEZ partnering with Gulf Savannah Development and is funded by the Queensland Government Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning, ten local government Councils, Queensland Resources Council, Regional Development Australia and five major corporations in the region. The Reference Group to guide the project is chaired by The Hon Tony McGrady, Mayor Mount Isa.
